We will be discussing When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalamithi. This is an account of Dr. Kalamithi's personal experiences when he was diagnosed with a terminal illness at the age of 36 while a neurosurgical resident in his final year of training. As he faces his own mortality he wrestles with the questions we all have about life and death and the book is a lifeaffirming testament to his commitment to living life fully until it ends.
