New Perspectives Book Discussion

1/5/2021 12:00 PM

Join us for an in-depth exploration of the book Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. Through interviews with doctors, stories from and about health care providers (such as the woman who pioneered the notion of “assisted living” for the elderly)—and eventually, by way of the story of his own father’s dying, Gawande examines the cracks in the system of health care to the aged (i.e. 97 percent of medical students take no course in geriatrics) and to the seriously ill who might have different needs and expectations than the ones family members predict. Copies of the book are available from the library.  If you would like to join, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
