Lewis Cohen Presents His New Book, A Dignified Ending, Wed., Sept. 11 at 7 pm




Dr. Lewis Cohen

In A Dignified Ending,  Lew Cohen takes us inside the heart of the unfolding cultural phenomenon and emotionally charged issue of end-of-life sovereignty with candid, inspirational, and graphic stories of individuals who sought to choreograph how they would die. Nothing about these choices is simple, and he illuminates how they impacted loved ones and have led activists—from Jack Kevorkian to Brittany Maynard—to engage in the assisted dying movement.

Lew Cohen is a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts-Baystate School of Medicine and a Palliative Medicine researcher. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and has written several previous books, including No Good Deed. Lew delights in having lived in Northampton with his wife, Professor Joan Berzoff, for 35 years.
