“In The Better End, Dr. Morhaim helps the reader to see that while death does have its sting, it need not be bitter and each of us can prepare for the end in better ways.” - Maya Angelou
Dr. Dan Morhaim is the only physician in the 188-member Maryland General Assembly. Board certified in Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine, he has more than 30 years of front-line clinical experience. Dr. Morhaim was first elected to the Maryland General Assembly in 1994 and has been re-elected every 4 years since. In the House of Delegates he serves as Deputy Majority Leader, House Chair of the Joint Committee on Health Care Delivery and Finance, and on the Health and Government Operations Committee where he chairs the Subcommittee on Government Operations.
Dr. Morhaim is on the faculty at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of Maryland. Dr. Morhaim’s book, The Better End (available for sale and signed by the author), alerts readers to the importance of end-of-life care planning for themselves and their families. The Better End is endorsed by Maya Angelou, Dr. Ben Carson, Montel Williams, and Hopkins Dean Dr. Michael Klag. Dr. Morhaim’s compelling and remarkably upbeat presentation focuses on empowerment and respect for personal values.
