SOLD OUT: Atul Gawande - Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End — at Sixth & I

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his bestselling Being Mortal, Gawande, a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, frequent media commentator, and the author of books including The Checklist Manifesto, confronts the role of medicine in the end of life. Drawing on both his medical practice and his own father’s sickness, Gawande proposes ways for doctors to emphasize comfort, independence, and quality of life in treating aging and terminally ill patients. He writes about the role of health care for patients who cannot be healed, proposes ways to turn elder-care facilities into true homes, and explores the physiology of aging. Now available in paperback, this book offers a valuable meditation on the human condition for people of all ages.

Gawande will be in conversation with Sarah Kliff, one of the country's leading health policy journalists.
