Being Mortal is back by popular demand:
If you thought you were dying, what would matter most?
See the documentary, join the conversation, and explore what matters to you!
Santa Fe Healthcare Network invites you to a free community screening and discussion of the documentary Being Mortal.
The film sheds light on how a cure-focused medical system often leaves out the sensitive conversations that need to happen so a patient’s true wishes can be known and honored at the end. It underscores the importance of people planning ahead and talking with family members about end-of-life decisions.
Seventy percent of Americans say they would prefer to die at home, but nearly 70 percent die in hospitals and institutions. Ninety percent of Americans know they should have conversations about end-of-life care, yet only 30 percent have done so.
This free community event is on August 17, 4:00–6:30pm, at Christ Church Santa Fe, 1213 Don Gaspar Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87505.
Panel discussion after the movie with Q & A:
Karin Thron, M.D., Ambercare Hospice Medical Director
Jeff Pine, Director of EGIS (Elders Getting Information and Services)
Doug Egli, M.D., Medical Director of CSVH Holistic Health & Wellness Center
