206: Dr. BJ Miller: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death on the Daily Community Meetup with Meredith Atwood
Today's Special Guest is Dr. BJ Miller.
Dr. Bruce (BJ) Miller Jr. is a hospice and palliative care specialist who treats hospitalized patients with terminal or life-altering illnesses. His expertise includes symptom management for patients with cancer. In his work in end-of-life care, he seeks to connect art, spirituality and medicine.
Miller has a grant from the Fetzer Institute to help integrate spirituality as part of the health of mind and body into medical education.
A native of Chicago, Miller studied art history as an undergraduate at Princeton University. He worked at nonprofit organizations for the arts and disability rights for several years before coming to UCSF to earn his medical degree. He completed an internal medicine residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where he was chief resident. He completed a fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine at Harvard Medical School, working at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
