If you thought you were dying, what would matter most?
Join a national dialogue taking place in Salem concerning an inescapable reality of life: death. Join your neighbors, friends and peers to watch the FRONTLINE documentary Being Mortal, which explores what matters most to patients and families experiencing serious illness.
Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, this film explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the doctors, nurses and family members who care for them.
This event is sponsored by Willamette Valley Hospice and the Alzheimer's Association.
Following the screening, there will be a discussion led by a panel of experts and the opportunity for you to ask your questions.
Featured panelists include:
Dr. Margaret Manoogian, Associate Professor of Gerontology
Amanda Heather, MSW, LCSW, Palliative Care Social Worker
Melissa Lindley, Outreach Coordinator/Advance Directive Educator
