Embrace a New Take on Life, Death, and Everything in Between

September 28, 2016

Join Mercy Hospice for a free viewing and discussion of the PBS Frontline one-hour documentary Being Mortal, based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande.

Our time together will focus on how patients facing serious illness explore personal life choices and how doctors, nurses and family members can best honor those choices in their life’s journey.

Watch the film and be part of a thought provoking conversation with a diverse panel that asks: “How would you like to best live the journey of your life, what are your end of life choices and how can those choices be fulfilled?”


Participants should choose from one of three sessions:
