Mon | Nov 6 | 7:00 pm | 87th Street

When Breath Becomes Air, a New York Times best-selling memoir, is an intimate and stirring look at how Dr. Paul Kalanithi dealt with his stage IV lung cancer diagnosis. His widow, Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, MD, FACP, will share her husband’s story and the journey her life has taken since its publication. An internal medicine physician and faculty member at the Stanford School of Medicine, she has appeared on PBS NewsHour, NPR Morning Edition, and Yahoo News with Katie Couric, and been interviewed for People, NPR, and The New York Times.

What Matters is made possible by founder, funder, and partner, Plaza Jewish Community Chapel, Inc., and support from UJA-Federation of New York, and is a collaboration between JCC Manhattan, the Center for Pastoral Education at JTS, and The New Jewish Home.
