Join us for two free screenings and discussions of the PBS FRONTLINE film Being Mortal on 7/25/16 and 8/25/16 from 6PM-8PM at Adirondack Medical Center - Redfield Room!

Based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, MD, this documentary explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the physicians who treat them.

See the film and be part of a national conversation that brings medical professionals and community members together around the shared responsibility of discussing what matters most to patients and families facing difficult treatment decisions and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis.

High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. is pleased to have been chosen as one of 200 national screening partners by the Hospice Foundation of America. We are proud to be community partners with Adirondack Health and their Palliative Care Program to bring this program to our communities. Dr. Elizabeth Buck will be the facilitator.
