#012 - Join host Dr. Red Hoffman as she interviews Dr. Jack M. Zimmerman, a retired cardiothoracic surgeon who served as the chief of surgery at Church Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and as an associate professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins. Jack first developed his interest in surgical palliation during his surgical residency, when he learned of the Souttar, a tube meant to help patients with esophageal cancer. He then went on to start one of the very first hospice programs in the United States. Jack discusses his memories of training under Dr. Alfred Blalock and of how meeting Dr. Balfour Mount convinced him to invest his time in opening a hospice at Church Hospital. For those interested in surgical history, this is a fascinating discussion!
