Being Mortal: Film Showing and Discussion
Event Dates and Times
Dove Healthcare-Bloomer 2217 Duncan Rd, Bloomer, WI 54724
Join us for the film showing of Being Mortal based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, this powerful PBS FRONTLINE film explores the hopes of patients and families facing the end of life. “Being Mortal” examines the nature of the relationship between patients and their doctors, nurses and family members. The film sheds light on a medical system so focused on a cure that it often neglects sensitive conversations about the patient’s true wishes. A panel of professionals will share their experiences, answer questions, and discuss local resources.
“Hope is not a plan.”
Dr. Atul Gawande, MD, MPH
