In the insightful article, Snow and Lollipops: Reflections on caring for the dying while raising children, Laura Koehn shares the lessons she’s learned working as a Neuropalliative doctor while raising two young children.

“Over the past year of my palliative care fellowship, I have learned that the discoveries made by the dying are not always that unlike the discoveries of my newly growing children that somehow get lost to us who are hopefully somewhere in the middle. While I am far from a philosopher, it is with humility that I would like to briefly share 5 lessons I have learned from my three year-old son, Ezra, as a reflection of the many wonderful people whom I have been privileged to care for over the past year,” Laura shares.
