Being Mortal

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Being Mortal Wednesday, September 25, 1:00pm and 5:30pm Join Aging Specialist and Social Worker, Lindsay Quillen, for a documentary and discussion around Being Mortal in today's healthcare structure. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients. This FRONTLINE film follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In a time where medicine, information, and technology are helping us live longer than ever before, how can we ensure the quality of our years and be prepared for emergency health and end-of-life care? The first step is talking about it! Registration is required for this program as seats are limited, please call 508-647-6540.
