Sunita Puri: The Uncertainty Specialist

View descriptionShare

Pain is like a geography—one that isn’t foreign to palliative care physician, Dr. Sunita Puri. Kate and Sunita speak about needing new language for walking the borderlands and how we all might learn to live—and die—with a bit more courage.

In this conversation, Kate and Sunita discuss: 

  • How to walk with one another through life’s ups and downs—especially health ups and downs
  • What “palliative care” means (and how it is distinct from hospice) 
  • The difference between what medicine can do and what medicine should do 
  • Sunita’s script for how to talk to patients facing difficult diagnoses 

This conversation originally aired in 2020 but it is one of our all-time favorites.
