Every life deserves a gentle and dignified ending.
The Integrated Lifecare Foundation team is committed to shifting the paradigm of end of life care, so that a gentle and dignified ending is the rule, and not the exception. As my friend Dr. Larry Schneiderman said, “We all deserve a soft landing.” Our Board of Directors and Foundation Administrator are passionate and dedicated, and bring a diverse set of skills and talents to the Foundation. We are grateful for the opportunity to work together on such meaningful and life-affirming work.

Founder & Board Member
I’ve always considered myself a problem solver. As a young boy, I was incredibly curious about the world and the people in it. As I matured and learned about the various career paths available to me I decided that being a physician, helping people through difficult and scary circumstances, was my calling.
