Join Carroll Hospice for a free viewing and panel discussion around the film Being Mortal. This Frontline documentary follows author and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande, M.D., as he explores the relationship doctors have
with patients nearing the end of life.

The film, in conjunction with Dr. Gawande’s book Being Mortal, investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how he and other doctors are often uncomfortable talking with patients about chronic illnesses and death.

A panel discussion with health care professionals, including Regina Bodnar, executive director of Carroll Hospice, and John W. Middleton, M.D., medical director of Carroll Hospice, will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions.

Light refreshments will be served.

Registration is preferred, but not required. To register, or for more information, please call 410-871-8000.
