How To Care Intensively
Sunday June 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Our main speaker, Jay Jayamohan, is a consultant paediatric neurosurgeon at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, star of two highly acclaimed BBC documentary series following the work of neurosurgeons, and author of the 2020 autobiography “Everything That Makes Us Human”. Jay will tell us what it means to care intensively: advocating for patients who can’t speak for themselves, guiding families through end-of-life choices no one wants to make, helping people feel empowered to make essential, life-changing decisions when there is no time to waste.
Hosted by Stuart Holdsworth (who will likely make a few ‘dad jokes’ in honour of Father’s Day), this assembly will also feature poetry by Clare Potter, pop and rock songs to get you up and moving, and community member Jennie Sutherland telling us how she’s “Trying Her Best”.
Please stay after for tea and biscuits (provided by you!), and lively conversation with other members of the community via Breakout Rooms. Everyone is welcome.
Because of the lockdown, we cannot meet at Conway Hall, so our meeting will be held on Zoom instead, and livestreamed to YouTube. Please click the link below to register: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMpcu6grz0iGt3kyyFFGV-52CEjROMFGEnJ
