Join me on our kick-off interview with a palliative physician who has advocated for patients and physicians alike for the purpose of relieveing pain and suffering for people facing serious illness. With a rich history and wiinner of many honorary service awards, he was voted in 2012 as one of the top 30 Visionaries in Hospice and Palliative Medicine by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

We will go on a journey from the beginnings of palliative medicine to some of the challenges of hospice and why people must advocate for themselves. He is a very passionate man with a wealth of experience in the industry. I could have talked with him all day.

His Bio:

Dr. Warren Wheeler, a nationally known Palliative Medicine Specialist, is the Senior Director of Palliative Medicine at Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas. Dr. Wheeler practiced medical oncology in Columbus, Ohio for 27 years, 25 of which were combined with hospice and palliative medicine.  He has been instrumental in the passage of legislation that has made it possible for physicians to legally and effectively treat the pain and suffering of the terminally ill.   Dr. Wheeler has published several papers in medical journals on palliative care and hospice, and cancer pain and has lectured nationally to the medical and science community.  He was one in the first group of physicians to become board certified through the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
