About The Autopsy Talks
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.
Event is for age 18+

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.”
