Coalition for Compassionate Care of California is excited to announce we will be capping off the first day of our Annual Palliative Care Summit with Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter in a special evening session on Monday, March 13, 2017.
Dr. Zitter is featured in Extremis, an award-winning documentary streaming on Netflix. The film follows patients, their families, and their doctors as they all struggle to find the courage to make the most difficult decisions in the most challenging of all environments.
This session is open to all Summit attendees and features a screening of the 25-minute film followed by an engaging talk by Dr. Zitter.
Dr. Zitter is a critical care and palliative care physician at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA. She is dedicated to the ideals and delivery of patient-centered medicine.
