Journey to the other side and back again in this creative, multimedia discussion series on the autopsy. Dr. Ben Margolis, director of Autopsy Center of Chicago, shares his experience and insights into the autopsy procedure, the patients who get them and families who ask for them. Learn how an autopsy is performed; understand how the information gained brings a family to a place of peace; and hear a story or two along the way that might surprise or move you. A three-part series:

Part I:  The (original) Autopsy Talks (April 11, May 9)
Engaging, thoughtful, introductory slideshow and discussion on the autopsy for the public.
Graphic level 3/10

Part II:  Surgery:  Incisions and Insights (April 17, May 15)
Come armed with curiosity and questions for a journey below the staple line.  Learn how an autopsy reveals the bodys experience under the knife; and share in the moving stories winding from operating room to autopsy suite.
Graphic level 5/10

Part III:  Stories from the Heart (April 24, June 5)
Voyage from vessel to valve, stent to saphenous vein graft, collapse to CPR as tales unfold.
Graphic level 6/10

Event is for age 18+
Multimedia discussion.  Event is not a comedy.

Chicago Magazine calls Dr. Margolis "the top expert in Chicago."

Time Out Chicago says the "slides show ends, my crime-TV intrigue whetted."

The AV Club came away "thoroughly squicked out and enchanted with all the new stuff we learned."
