Lives Less Ordinary (The New Yorker)


Attending physician Christina Ullrich ’94 features prominently in this New Yorker piece about the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT) at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“Perhaps it sounds like reinventing the wheel,” Ullrich tells writer and Harvard physician Jerome Groopman. “But the PACT approach was what I had hoped medicine would be.”

PACT is one of the country’s first pediatric palliative-care programs, according to the story. And Ullrich was one of the first physicians in the country to be trained in the discipline.
