Death of a Child, Part I: Is it About Emotions? Episode 12


Adults die. Children die. People do die and we may be the ones that determine death, viability, and ultimately be the final ones present as they complete their journey.

Nowhere does this concept seem to be more troublesome as when death comes to a child. Decisions are often based upon emotions, religion, personal philosophy and beliefs while putting aside medically sound judgement. Why is this?

Join Dr. Lou Romig, Dr. Laurie Romig, Scott Kier, Daniel McGuire, Dr. Todd Bindig, and Kyle David Bates as they only start to dissect this complicated topic in part 1 of 3 in the series entitled Death of a Child.

Join us over on our Facebook page to discuss this topic in-depth.
