Free community screenings of the “Being Mortal” documentary will be held at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 15th and March 22, 2017 (times to be announced).
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 he encounters. The film sheds light on how a medical system focused on cure often leaves out the sensitive conversations that need to happen so a patient’s wishes can be known and honored at the end of their lives. The film is an adaptation of Gawande’s 2014 nationally best-selling book of the same name.
