Event description

Description

You’re invited to a free screening and discussion of the PBS program “Being Mortal” on Wednesday, 3/22/2016 from 1-4pm at Peace Health Education Center -Auditorium A & B.

Local community partners the End of life Coalition and Koelsch Communities will be hosting the documentary screening and a discussion panel.

The film explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows a surgeon, Dr. Atul Gawande, as he 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.

See this moving documentary, join the conversation, and explore what matters to you.

All are welcome. We hope to see you there!
