While an undergraduate at Princeton University, BJ Miller was electrocuted and nearly died, and the accident left him a triple amputee. Today, as executive director of the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco, he has built his life work around the care of others who are approaching death. We listen back to a July 14 conversation with Miller, as part of our First Person series on local leaders and innovators.
