Atul Gawande - Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End — at Sidwell Friends Meeting House
Known for his ability to clarify complicated problems and propose commonsense solutions, Gawande, the author most recently of The Checklist Manifesto is a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, he confronts the role of medicine in the end of life. As doctors increasingly face difficult situations where longer life means only more suffering, Gawande shows why quality of life, ultimately, must be the deciding factor in treatment.
Gawande will be in conversation with Bill Novelli, Professor, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University, Co-chair, Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC), and former CEO of AARP
