Event Info

Being Mortal flyerPlease plan to join Ombudsman Services of San Mateo County on Thursday, September 24 from 10:00 am to 12 Noon at Veterans Memorial Senior Center Theater, 1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City, for the screening of the Frontline Documentary “Being Mortal”. The film explores how the medical profession can better help people navigate the final chapters of their lives with confidence, direction and purpose. In this film, Dr. Atul Gawande, a renowned surgeon, explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life and investigates the practice of caring for the dying. The film shows how doctors are often remarkably untrained and often times uncomfortable talking about chronic disease and death with their patients. After the film, a discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Maureen Dudgeon, M.D., palliative care physician. To RSVP, please email by September 17.
