We sent the following message to our Georgia supporters last week:
I’d like to invite you to a free screening of the PBS Frontline program, Being Mortal, in Atlanta. After the film, we’ll host a discussion about how to approach the end-of-life conversation. You’ll learn how to prioritize your end-of-life preferences, how to discuss them with your loved ones and doctor, and how to turn them into legal documents.
WHAT: A screening of Being Mortal and discussion
WHERE: City of Light Congregation, 3125 Presidential Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340
WHEN: Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Based on the national best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, Being Mortal delves into the wishes of patients facing terminal illness. The video investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows Dr. Gawande, a surgeon, as he shares stories from patients and families he treats. When Dr. Gawande’s own father gets cancer, Dr. Gawande’s search for how to best care for the dying becomes a personal quest.
We can’t wait to share this groundbreaking documentary with you. So, bring a friend and join us for a screening and discussion that could provide great help and comfort to you and your loved ones approaching end of life. No RSVP is necessary.
Thanks for all you do,
