[ARCHIVED] Community Discussions on the Best-Selling Book BEING MORTAL

SHPL Being Mortal programs

Dr. Atul Gawande’s acclaimed bestseller, Being Mortal, Medicine and What Matters in the End, has started a national conversation about the deep flaws in our society’s current treatment of people with serious illness and those who are facing end of life.

Using Dr. Gawande's book as a springboard and drawing on the rich resources of Cooley Dickinson Health Care, local librarians and palliative care practitioners will look closely at our goals for end-of-life care and begin to plan how to bring about better outcomes for ourselves and our loved ones.

In collaboration with Cooley Dickinson medical experts, local libraries are sponsoring discussions throughout Hampshire and Franklin Counties in March and April.
