“Being Mortal” Screening and Panel

Join Us for a free screening and discussion of the PBS Frontline film “Being Mortal”.

 Based on the best-selling book written 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 medical crisis. Learn about volunteer opportunities through Compass Hospice and how you can assist with Kent County patients and families going through this process.

 

This program is free and open to the public, sponsored by the Pre-Health program.
