Creecy Book Club- Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

  • Wednesday, November 8th at 7:00 p.m. in The Meeting Room
  • Tuesday, November 14th at 2:00 p.m. in The Meeting Room

Summary: Atul Gawande presents problems and potential solutions to the question of how we can best address our mortality. Through stories and research he shows that we are shifting from a highly medicalized end of life to an experience in which we can have some sort of meaning. Surgeon, writer and public health researcher Gawande asks how we can live out our later years in the way we desire and how best to talk to our health-care providers to achieve that. He also discusses how health-care providers can and should approach talking to aging patients and their families.

Join us for a fun and lively discussion of this title at our monthly book club meeting! No Registration Required.
