I am thrilled to announce that my dear friend Dr. Frances Norwood’s book, The Maintenance of Life: Preventing Social Death through Euthanasia Talk and End-of-Life Care – Lessons from The Netherlands,” (2009), was recently selected to receive the Prestigious 2011 Margaret Mead Award from the Society for Applied Anthropology and the American Anthropological Association. Dr. Frances Norwood will be my guest on Monday to discuss her book and answer questions regarding the common practice of Euthanasia in the Netherlands and based on her research is this a good end of life experience compared to the way we die and/or suffer near the end of our existence in the United States? And how does conventional religious view this practice ? Please email your questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for Dr. Norwood prior to Mondays broadcast and we will try to get your questions answered.
