Event description

Description

See the documentary & explore what matters most to you.


If it were possible you were dying, what would you most want? Join a national conversation taking place in Sarasota and across the nation regarding an inescapable reality of life – death. Gather with family, friends and peers to watch a free screening of Being Mortal, featuring Dr. Atul Gawande, physician and best selling author, as he explores the struggles and relationships between doctors and patients nearing the end of life.

After the one-hour PBS film, engage in a local panel discussion led by Bruce Berg, MD, dean of the FSU College of Medicine Sarasota campus, with bioethics and palliative care experts Joelle Vlahakis, MD, Medical Director of Supportive Care Services at Sarasota Memorial; Miriam Lacher, licensed mental health counselor and clinical educator at Sarasota Memorial; and special guest Amy Berman, RN, senior program officer with the John A. Hartford Foundation in New York City and leading expert on care for the seriously ill. The event is free and open to the public and professionals.
