As part of a collaboration between Marketplace and The New York Times, Marketplace’s Dan Gorenstein reported a story on end of life care for doctors, and how it is different than end of life care for the rest of the population.

In his reporting, Dan witnessed some incredible insights into care options and procedures for those at the end of life. And he has been asked tons of questions about his reporting and the U.S. health care system.
