"Being Mortal" Special Screening of the groundbreaking film

Beacon Hospice and Webster at Rye will offer a special screening of the groundbreaking PBS film “Being Mortal” based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, M.D.  This PBS Frontline Special features the renowned Boston surgeon and author as he investigates caring for the dying and what really matters in the end.


Each attendee will be provided with a variety of valuable and practical resources, including a worksheet to identify what’s most important to you and your family and a workbook to start documenting your own advance care directives. 


Dr. Keenan Al-Hojerry, Medical Director at Webster at Rye along with hospice specialists, will lead a discussion of key themes and implications as we come to terms with our own eventual mortality. 


The public is invited to join us at Webster at Rye’s North Solarium on Tuesday, February 28th from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.  A light supper including coffee and dessert will be provided.  Please RSVP to Karen Johnson, 603-379-1514 or email by February 23, 2017.  Snow date:  March 2, 6-7:30 p.m.
