Dr. Michael Nissenblatt was the first speaker in the Foundation of the Wilf Campus for Senior Living’s annual lecture on Sunday, August 22, 2021.
Dr. Nissenblatt is an oncologist who has guided many individuals through rough times in their lives. In his presentation, which you can view by clicking on the above link, Dr. Nissenblatt tries to give an understanding of our human predicament – that we are probably the only living things which can foresee our end. Given this truth, how can we still have hope for the future? What strategies keep us optimistic and productive? What is the role of upbringing and family in this perception? Why has this been a cultural priority? Why is the pandemic good? Just what is this strange eternal message?
