"Being Mortal" Free Community Event

Event
Event Date: 
Thu, 10/05/2017 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Death is something we will all one day face. So, why is it hard for doctors to talk with their patients about dying? How can the medical profession better help people navigate the final chapters of their lives with confidence, direction, and purpose? Renowned surgeon and New Yorker writer Atul Gawande explored those questions in his bestselling book, Being Mortal. Now, Gawande brings his personal journey, and the stories of his patients and their families, to life and challenges us all to reexamine how we think about death and dying. This is a free educational event that will include a viewing of the “Being Mortal” movie followed by a facilitated panel discussion including healthcare professionals and community members. Light refreshments will be provided.
