The first guest speaker at the conference was Dr. BJ Miller. Dr. BJ Miller is one of the pre-eminent speakers on palliative and end of life care. Drawing on his expertise as a physician, former Executive Director of Zen Hospice Care, and as a patient, he is an advocate for a healthcare system that minimizes unnecessary suffering and maximizes quality of life. Dr. Miller has lectured widely on all aspects of palliative care, as well as person-centered care, the therapeutic potential of aesthetics, and how to design for life. His TED Talk, "What Really Matters at the End of Life," is a moving reflection of his vision to make emphatic end-of- life care available to all, and has garnered more than four million views to date and ranked among the Top 15 Most Viewed Talks of 2015.
