For Some, Death Is Part Of The Job

While many people work to avoid a conversation about death, others choose to be surrounded by it every day.

Maggie McMeekin is a Resource Nurse at a JourneyCare in-patient hospice clinic in the northwest suburbs. Morning Shift spends a day on the job with McMeekin to better understand her reality.

We also hear from Dr. Jalal Baig, who spends his day working to heal, treat and save. Baig is a Hematology and Oncology Fellow at University of Illinois-Chicago.
