Being Mortal - Screening & Discussion


Join Hospice of Frederick County and Hood College on April 4, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. for a FREE screening Being Mortal, followed by a panel discussion and reception with wine and light refreshments.

Being Mortal is a Frontline documentary that follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande’s best-selling book, Being Mortal, the film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors are often untrained and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

Panelists include:

  • Rev. Beth O'Malley Dean of the Chapel at Hood College
  • Carlos Graveran Executive Director, Hospice of Frederick County
  • Danielle Doberman, MD Geriatrics and Palliative Care, GW Medical Faculty
  • Anugeet Kaur, MD Family Medicine, Frederick Memorial Hospital
  • Kathy Troupe, CRNP CARE Clinic, Frederick Memorial Hospital
