End in Mind takes the universal experience of dying to help you re-imagine what it means to live fully at any stage of life.

In this special series of conversations, we talk about planning for the end of life with advance care directives but also explore the larger questions around living and dying.

So, you’ve written an advance care directive. You’ve made it clear, you think, about the kinds of medical care you want should you get sick with Covid-19 or you’re in the midst of a medical crisis. Will your wishes be followed? We talk with two bioethics experts.

Please tell us your name and where you’re calling from.
