Ageless Adversity Lecture Series: What Does it Mean to do Everything
January 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What Does It Mean To Do “Everything”: Medical Science has made many advances over the past 150 years with the elimination of epidemics and cures for many diseases. The hope and hype generated by this progress has raised expectations amongst medical professionals and the public. Unfortunately, progress follows the law of diminishing returns. All diseases and death cannot be eliminated. Yet the medical system, the medical corporations and drug companies focus on what often is false hope. As a result, doctors emphasize treatment over comfort. Prolongation of life over quality of life. A patient or as a person, you should be fully informed about what a doctor offers. Ask questions and make decisions that are good for you.
