Dr. Jessica Zitter, the Noted Critical and Palliative Care Specialist, Is Speaking Soon in Tulsa

Aired on Monday, October 15th.

The nonprofit Clarehouse -- a home in Tulsa offering loving care for people in the last month of life -- is now presenting its annual Community Conversation Series. This series, per the Clarehouse website, is a multi-venue line-up that "advances the discussion about end-of-life care and wishes, opening our minds and hearts to dialogue about death and dying. Three evenings are dedicated to starting the conversation, sharing information, and providing the tools needed to begin the process of putting one's priorities and desires into action. All are free and open to the public." The next (and second) event in this series, happening on Tuesday the 16th, will feature Dr. Jessica Zitter, a critical and palliative care specialist and author whose books include the well-regarded "Extreme Measures." This edition of ST Medical Monday features an encore presentation of our interview with Dr. Zitter, which we originally aired when that book first appeared in 2017.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
