Podcast: Interview with Living and Dying with Dignity author Jennifer Jilks

On this episode of the Medical Author Chat I talk to retired teacher and hospice volunteer about her book Living and Dying with Dignity: A Daughters Journey Through Long-Term Care

The book is a combination of Jennifer’s biographical journey as a daughter caring for her two ailing parents and the switch from adult child to caregiver. It is also a compilation of lessons learned about death and dying and sharing resources related to palliative care. Jennifer wrote the book from the point of view as a teacher.

We finish the conversation with a discussion about the difficulty getting published and how Jennifer used a co-publishing strategy to bring her book to fruition. You can connect with Jennifer on the many blogs she writes:
