Being Mortal – Free Screenings Statewide

Video Capture

“The two big unfixables are aging and dying. You can’t fix those.”

“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. Investigating the practice of caring for the dying and exploring the relationships between patients and their doctors surgeon, Dr. Atul Gawande shares stories from the people and families he encounters. When Dr. Gawande’s own father gets cancer, his search for answers about how to best care for the dying becomes a personal quest.

After the screening, you can participate in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences.
