Episode 54 - Dr BJ Miller

BJ Miller.jpg

Dr. BJ Miller is a hospice & palliative medicine physician and sees patients and families at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, where he also teaches and serves on faculty. BJ consults at the intersection of palliative care and design & frequently speaks publicly on this topic.

His interests are in working across disciplines to affect broad-based culture change and in cultivating a civic model for aging and dying. He invites us to think about and discuss the end of our lives through the lens of a mindful, human-centered model of care, one that embraces dying not as a medical event but rather as a universally shared life experience. Informed by his own experiences as a patient, BJ powerfully advocates the roles of our senses, community and presence in designing a better ending.
