Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
June 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join JSSA and Sibley Memorial Hospital for a free screening and panel 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. Be a part of a national conversation taking place about what matters most when facing difficult treatment decisions and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis.
