From the Director’s Desk

Happy Holidays.

This late fall and past year have been full of concerning news over a number of police shootings. While our role at Autopsy Center is to focus on medical cause of death, we would be in remiss if we did not comment on the important events and changes taking place in our cities, including Chicago. Please take a look at my essay: Commentary: The Laquan McDonald Shooting for a perspective. Our common experience with the humanity behind communication gives us a perspective for working with families during a loss, regardless of the nature of the death. See what you think.

We have one more date before the New Year for our event, ‘The Autopsy Talks’ at Theater Wit. Join us December 30 at 7:30 pm and keep an eye out for new dates in 2016. Check out Fox News and DNAinfo coverage of the event. Scrambling for Christmas present last minute? Keep this acclaimed event in mind.

Best for a safe and happy New Year.


Ben Margolis, M.D.
