Maureen Leahy, RN, BSN, MHA, CHPN

Clinical Nurse Manager
Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute
Mount Sinai Hospital

Maureen has seen the many faces of the dying process. She lost her father to cancer, lost her partner to a sudden heart attack, and has battled her own cancer diagnosis and treatment process. She finds that notions of surrender and acceptance can help patients when facing the fear, pain, and abandonment that can come with a protracted illness.
