Death, while inevitable, is one of the hardest things to talk about. But a growing national movement warns that not broaching this subject leads to a very difficult end for families and loved ones. What matters most to you? If you knew you were dying what would be your wishes and preferences?

Come join us Wednesday, March 22, 2017 and participate in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps for communicating end-of-life goals. We will view the PBS Frontline film, “Being Mortal”, which follows Dr. Atul Gawande as he speaks with colleagues and patients/families who are facing the end, and addresses why physicians aren’t particularly good at handling people going through the last phase of life.

We hope to see you on the 22nd!

The free screening is made possible by a grant from The John and Wauna Harman Foundation in partnership with the Hospice Foundation of America. This event is hosted by CompassionCare Hospice and Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.

(The screening will be held in Sunrise Hospitals Auditorium Room: 3186 S Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Located on the 1st floor near the cafeteria-if interested in attending, please rsvp to njuliano@cchlv.com).
