Houston Newsmakers Jan. 15: Medical Ethics
HOUSTON – What will you do when your parent is dying? How will you handle how their final days will be lived? Who in your family will take charge? Have you made arrangements for your own end of life?
Amy McGuire Ph.D. is Director of the Baylor College of Medicine's Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy. Her organization works to help answer some of those questions and this week on Houston Newsmakers Extra you hear some of the examples about what they do and how you may benefit.
N.J. Pierce is co-chair of the one woman docudrama "Let Me Down Easy" performed by actress-playwright Anna Deavere Smith. Her performance is part of an evening designed to open a discussion about mortality and the ethical issues surrounding the difficult decisions we all must face at some point in our lives.
Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall airs every Sunday at 10 a.m. right after Meet the Press on KPRC 2.
