Dr Kathryn Mannix delivers the 2023 Theos Annual Lecture ‘Dying For Beginners’ at the Royal Society of Medicine. 08/11/2023
On behalf of Theos and CCLA, thank you for watching the Theos Annual Lecture 2023, which was delivered by Dr Kathryn Mannix. The title of this year’s lecture was Dying for beginners: how understanding death can help us to live better.
Acclaimed author, speaker and former palliative care physician Dr Kathryn Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses. The author of two Sunday Times Bestsellers – With The End in Mind and Listen, Dr Mannix is on a mission to reclaim the public’s understanding of dying.
Held on All Saints Day, which falls in the middle of the “days of the dead” in the Christian calendar – Halloween and All Souls Day – Dr Mannix’s Theos lecture explored topics around mortality, universal themes of death–myths, the process we need to re–familiarise ourselves with, and the preciousness of a finite lifetime.
