Being Mortal

Being Mortal Workshop

Saturday, March 25, 2017

The film "Being Mortal" investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows Dr. Gawande, a surgeon, 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 best to care for the dying becomes a personal quest. The film sheds light on how a medical system focused on a cure often leaves out the sensitive conversations that need to happen so a patient's true wishes can be known and honored at the end.

After the screening, audience members will engage with a five member expert panel on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences.
