Doctor Ira Byock argues that we need to seriously shift our political and cultural thinking about end of life care. The Dartmouth-Hitchcock physician is one of the leading thinkers on palliative medicine, and his new book is "The Best Care Possible: A Physician’s Quest to Transform End of Life Care." Byock is Jane Lindholm’s guest Monday on Vermont Edition.
Also in the program, Liz Gamache is the new mayor of Saint Albans. She talks with Jane Lindholm about what she wants to accomplish within the city’s "weak mayor" system.
