Dr. Harold Braswell

Dr. Harold Braswell, Emory PhD and active member of the DSI while at Emory, is now an Assistant Professor at the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics.

His book, "A Tale of Two Hospices: Freedom and Abandonment in US End-of-Life Care," is officially under contract at Johns Hopkins University Press. This research draws on a year-and-a-half of ethnographic fieldwork in various Atlanta-area hospices, as well as original archival research on the modern US hospice movement. His scholarship has won awards from the Hastings Center, the Society for Disability Studies, and the University of Chicago Program on Medicine and Religion.
