Brown Bag Lunch Talks: Death, Resuscitation and the Brain: Adventures in Bringing Back the Recently Dead
January 20, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
David Casarett, M.D., is a physician, researcher, and tenured professor at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine as well as the Director of Hospice and Palliative Care at the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
Dr. Casarett’s major research interest is understanding and improving the way that health systems care for patients near the end of life. His work has included studies of hospice and hospice alternatives, as well as a randomized controlled trial of a decision aid to improve end of life care. Dr. Casarett has been the PI for a nationwide study to develop a valid and reliable technique to assess the quality of end-of-life care that the Veterans’ Administration provides, as well as for NIH- and VA-funded projects to understand how end-of-life services can be more patient-focused.
He has recently published Shocked: Adventures in Bringing Back the Recently Dead.
Dr. Casarett is also a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor given by the US government to researchers in the early stages of their careers.
Our series of Informal Brown Bag Lunch Talks take place from 12:00-1:15pm and are held in Room 523, Goddard Labs, 3710 Hamilton Walk. Please help us accommodate your attendance by sending a rsvp to: email@example.com.
