Looking back on the last few years of my mother’s life, …my single biggest mistake was not finding a doctor with expertise in geriatrics to quarterback her care and attend to the quality of her life, not merely its length.

I give her credit for taking ownership of what happened, rather than heaping blame on the system. What Gross calls a quarterback, I call a project manager and Russ Roberts calls a shepherd in our podcast ten days ago.
