Miller, who lost three limbs in an accident while a student at Princeton, and subsequently redesigned his life, wisdom, and the way he reframes our relationship to our imperfect bodies and all that we don’t control.
“Those unexpected moments – those things we think are innocuous, which are the surprises of a daily life…they’re happening all the time. And that’s been a way (for me) into some curiosity and mystery into it.”
Dr. Miller is the Executive Director of San Francisco’s Zen Hospice Project, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF, and is an attending specialist for the Symptom Management Service of the UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of the country’s very first outpatient palliative care clinics.
