Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End

Join us as we explore how we as individuals and as a society face our mortality.  The Frontline documentary, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, will be shown on Thursday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m., Waukesha Public Library. Following the film, Dr. Kelly Cooke, Medical Director of Palliative Care at ProHealth Care, will lead a discussion on this often difficult and sensitive subject. National Healthcare Decisions Day is April 16 and this event may assist you in making those important choices. The Frontline film is Dr. Atul Gawande’s compassionate view of how all of us, doctors included, should face mortality with both our hearts and minds.
