"Being Mortal" - A Film Presentation and Discussion
JOIN US for a free screening and discussion of the PBS FRONTLINE film Being Mortal. Based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, MD, this documentary explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the physicians who treat them.
See the film and be part of a national conversation that brings medical professionals and community members together around the shared responsibility of discussing what matters most to patients and families facing difficult treatment decisions and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis. Please RSVP to (252) 328-4209 or by emailing Dr. Abby Schwartz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Light refreshments will be provided.
This screening is made available by the Hospice Foundation of America, underwritten by the John and Wauna Harman Foundation.
