Honoring Choices Napa Valley will host a free screening of the documentary "Being Mortal" from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at the Tucker Farm Center, 1201 Tucker Road, Calistoga.
Based on Dr. Atul Gawande's book, “This film builds a bridge between people who face terminal illness and the doctors who care for them," according to Honoring Choices. "It illustrated the value of a patient’s personal choice, decision-making, and the need for discussing them with a physician to ensure the medical care received is responsive to the desires of the patients and their families.
“See the film and be part of a national conversation that brings medical professional and community members together around the shared responsibility of discussing what matters most to patients and families facing difficult treatment discussions and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis.”
