2018 DECIDE WNY Conference

At the end of our lives, what do we most wish for? For many, it’s simply comfort, respect, love. 

Meet BJ


BJ Miller is a palliative care physician who thinks deeply about how to create a dignified, graceful end of life for his patients. Join us for the March 10th Annual DECIDE WNY Conference with keynote and TedX speaker BJ Miller, MD. Dr. BJ Miller is one of the pre-eminent speakers on palliative and end-of-life care. Drawing on his expertise as a physician, former Executive Director of Zen Hospice Project, and as a patient, he is an advocate for a healthcare system that minimizes unnecessary suffering and maximizes quality of life. Dr. Miller has lectured widely on all aspects of palliative care, as well as person-centered care, the therapeutic potential of aesthetics, and how to design for life. 

Take the time to savor this moving talk, which asks big questions about how we think about death and honor life. 


Dr. Miller will be joined with Speakers Yvonne Askew; Katie Grimm, MD; Chris Kerr, MD; Sandra Lauer, RN; Laurie Menzies; Kathleen Mylotte, MD; and Charles Yates, MD.


Breakfast and registration will begin at 7:30 AM with the conference starting at 8:00 AM.
