“Dealing With Doctors, Denial and Death – A Guide To Living Well With Serious Illness,” With Oncologist, UNM Professor and author, Dr. Aroop Mangalik.

 

 

Dealing with Doctors, Denial and Death book coverOften when death is the inevitable and impending outcome of a health diagnosis, doctors are reluctant to discuss alternatives to treatment, feeding into a culture of denial that can result in expensive, ineffective, and unnecessary over treatment that may or may not extend life but almost always damages the quality of life. Here, a seasoned doctor and researcher looks at the ways in which we are accustomed to treating illness at all costs, even at the expense of the quality of a patient’s life. He considers our culture of denial, the medical profession’s role in over treating patients and end of life care, and the patient’s options and role in these decisions. The goal is to help patients and families make informed decisions that may help the seriously ill live better with their illnesses.

“This profoundly empowering book will help people make informed decisions about their lives and medical care, especially those who have a life-threatening or life-changing illness themselves or have a family member living with one. Incorporating specific questions for patients to ask their doctors and discuss with their families, the book provides an analysis of various forces that influence our decision-making. The book also examines the professional, psychological, economic, and social pressures that influence physicians treating seriously ill patients, including those that lead doctors to recommend treatments that may be futile. The book concludes with resources that seriously ill patients and their families can call upon to give them support and assist with the logistical, emotional, and spiritual challenges of end-of-life care. Having spent 50 years as an oncologist, Mangalik offers a common sense guide to planning a good death”.

Dr. Aroop Mangalik is an Emeritus Professor at UNM and has been a hematologist-medical oncologist at the UNM Cancer Center since 1983. He has been working for many years on initiatives to make seriously ill patients comfortable and to assist and inform in decision making.

Jennifer Ramo worked with Senator Michael Padilla to write state law banning schools from shaming children without ability to pay for meals. An effective approach to poverty requires taking care of short-term needs like food and shelter, with an eye on long-term solutions. Community realities have to inform any policy solutions just as much as legal and economic realities.  New Mexico Appleseed addresses poverty from all of these perspectives.  Jenny Ramo, founder and Executive Director of New Mexico Appleseed spoke about the organization’s work, including the nationally praised “Lunch Shaming Bill” and its work using data to predict and prevent problems associated with poverty.

JourneySantaFe hosts Red Mountain Press‘s 10th Anniversary Celebration & Launch of TEN YEARS ON THE MOUNTAIN, an Anthology of Poetry & Prose by Red Mountain Authors.

Journey Hosts: Alan Webber and Bill Dupuy

 Red Mountain Press celebrates its tenth anniversary with the publication of an anthology, Ten Years on the Mountain. Ten authors will each be reading one short work from the new book.

 Ten Years on the Mountain is an anthology of poems and prose, with comments — moving, humorous, and pointed — from twenty-five authors describing their unique experiences working with Red Mountain Press. They present an engaging picture of Red Mountain from the authors’ point of view. The authors reflect the high esteem Red Mountain has for literary talent and its commitment to excellence in editing and design.

 The Red Mountain authors are:

Lisa Bickmore * Keith Emmons * Ann Filemyr * Susan Gardner * Robyn Hunt * Donald Levering * Gary Worth * Moody Bill O’Neill * Margaret Randall * Anne Valley-Fox

 

Tenth Mountain believes that there is a wonderful variety of fine, contemporary work being made today. “The public is avid for art, poetry and literature that illuminates our world with beauty and meaningful ideas but which all too often do not meet the criteria of commercial publishers. The work can find a home here. We publish contemporary books of the highest quality. The books are as beautiful as their contents”. The emphasis will always be on quality and relevance to contemporary life. We collaborate with artists and authors individually to realize their unique vision in the form of a book. Red Mountain Press awards a prize for poetry. RD Ross, the owner and publisher of Red Mountain Press, is a tireless organizer, giving a lifetime of service to community efforts, especially in the arts and education.

 

Susan Gardner, publisher and founding editor, is a poet, painter, photographer and literary editor. She has received wide recognition for her poetry and memoir and her art has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Europe, Japan, Mexico, and the United States.

Water is for Fighting Over and Other Myths About Water in the West: An Exploration of Solutions to the Colorado River Basin’s Water Problems, with John Fleck.

Hosts: Andy Otto, Alan Webber & Bill Dupuy

In conjunction with the Santa Fe Watershed Association, Journey Santa Fe is offering four speakers in May on the subject of WATER  and WATERSHEDS IN NEW MEXICO  and how they relate to our local Santa Fe River watershed.

A science journalist with 30 years of  newspaper  experience, John first wrote about water in the 1980s as a beat reporter covering the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. He is the author of the book Water is for Fighting Over and Other Myths About Water in the West, an exploration of solutions to the Colorado River Basin’s water problems, published by Island Press.

Growing population and a warming climate are placing increasing pressures on the water supplies of the western United States. But contrary to common narratives of crisis, conflict, and looming apocalypse, the region’s communities have been quietly adapting to the changing circumstances. In showing that we can do more with less, and learning to collaborate rather than fight over water, these communities are lighting a path toward a future in which the West can not only survive but thrive in the face of its water supply adversity.

 

As a journalist, including more than two decades’ work at the Albuquerque Journal from 1990 to 2014, John grew to increasingly specialize in the water resource issues so critical in New Mexico and arid Southwest. His water-related writings and newspaper coverage have included important legal decisions as well as legislative activity, and spanned the state of New Mexico, as well as neighboring states, such as Arizona, Colorado and Texas.

Law Professor and Author G. Emlen Hall: “Water Tales from the St. Augustine Plains”

Hosts: Andy Otto, Alan Webber & Bill Dupuy

Santa Fe Watershed Association

The Santa Fe Watershed Association, in conjunction with Journey Santa Fe, is offering four speakers in May on the subject of WATER and WATERSHEDS IN NEW MEXICO  and how they relate to our local Santa Fe River watershed.

 

This talk will discuss the pending application to drill and pump 54,000 acre feet per year from a ranch in the Plains of San Augustine in Catron County near the Very Large Array (VLA). The application proposes to pipe that new water 130 miles up the Rio Grande where it would be offered for sale to water-short municipalities such as Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and others along the way. The municipalities have not committed themselves to the project or to purchasing the water. The so-called “APR project” has caused enormous controversy of all kinds. This talk will analyze the width and depth of that controversy and assess it against the historical, legal, scientific and human background of the APR pipeline proposal.  Em Hall became an emeritus professor of law in 2007. He has focused his research and writing on the history of land and water in the Southwest in general and New Mexico in particular. He has written three books on the topic: Four Leagues of Pecos: A Legal History of the Pecos Grant from 1800 to 1936 (1984); High and Dry: The Texas-New Mexico Struggle for the Pecos River (2002), and Reining in the Rio Grande (with Phillips and Black) (2011). Prior to joining the UNM law faculty in 1983, he spent seven years at the State Engineer’s Office. During his time there, he wrote an administrative history of the Pecos River Compact from its inception in 1949 to 1974. This was the beginning of his research for “High and Dry.”
