The Being Mortal Community Project

Being Mortal.png

In this documentary, Dr. Atul Gawande tells the story of how he learned about death and dying in the context of being a healer. The film reveals stories from physicians, patients and families he encounters, including his own, and shares new light on how our system often focused on a cure, neglects the important conversations that need to happen so that a person’s true priorities can be known and honored.

Please join us for this free film presentation and community conversation with presented by Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties and Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library.
