Event Description


After working with patients and as a hospice trustee, Dr. Harrington offers a unique perspective on end-of-life planning and care. Harrington will appear in conversation with Mary Ann Gwinn.

Samuel Harrington, MD, an honors graduate of Harvard College and the University of Wisconsin Medical School, concentrated his clinical practice at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC. There he served as a medical staff leader, a trustee, and as Sibley's representative to the Johns Hopkins Quality and Safety Board Committee. This work and his service on the board of trustees of a nonprofit hospice brought Dr. Harrington into the discussion of end-of-life medical care.

Mary Ann Gwinn is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who writes about books and authors for The Seattle Times, Booklist, Newsday and other publications. She was one of three jurors for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in fiction. She serves on the board of the National Book Critics Circle.
