Last chances to see the PBS Frontline Film, Being Mortal, are this week!

You can join us tomorrow and Thursday for these FREE screenings and discussions. Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawade, 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. Have you had these important conversations with your loved-ones and planned ahead? Now is the time, don’t wait.

After the screening, you can participate in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences. You can watch a short trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRkr09ZMI3w

(This course has been designated by Sunrise Health System for 2.0 credits of education in medical ethics and/or professional responsibilities.)

All are welcome. We hope to see you there!
