Free 'Being Mortal' screening Nov. 27


November 22, 2018

Whitman Hospital & Medical Center and Friends of Hospice will present “Being Mortal” Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 6 p.m. at the Palouse Library. After the showing, audience members can participate in a discussion with trained Advance Care Planning facilitators on what steps to take on identifying and communicating wishes about end-of-life goals and preferences.

“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande, as he shares stories from the people and families he encounters. When Dr. Gawande’s own father gets cancer, his search for answers becomes a personal quest.
