Title:  “Palliative Care Journal Club: Psilocybin and Esketamine – Are Psychedelics Making a Comeback for Palliative Medicine”

 

Bio: Kelly finished residency in Internal Medicine at Duke and is excited to have switched shades of blue to pursue her training in Palliative and Hospice Medicine as a fellow here at UNC. She is originally from Littleton, Colorado and attended the University of Denver for her undergraduate education and stayed in Colorado to complete medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.  Some of her interests include exploring why patients pursue aggressive treatment at the end of life and integrating advance care planning into the outpatient setting.  She lives in Durham with her husband, Matthew,  2 year old son, Owen, and twin 5 month old boys, Dylan and Logan. She is moving in the fall to join the inpatient Palliative Care team at the University of Colorado.
