The PBS Frontline documentary “Being Mortal” (based on the bestselling book by Dr. Atul Gawande) explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the doctors, nurses and family members who care for them. The film will be followed by a discussion facilitated by David Leven about end of life planning, health care proxies and other advance directives, talking with loved ones about end of life care, and communicating effectively with doctors.
This program will be held at the John C. Harford Memorial Library, 1130 East Main Street, Shrub Oaks, NY 10588. The screening and discussion is free and open the public. For more information call 914-245-5262.
