Free Screening of Being Mortal at Tucson’s The Loft

| By Meredith Ford

Being Mortal quickly became a must-read for a lot of healthcare professionals, especially those focused on end-of-life care and terminal illnesses. After the book’s publication, PBS Frontline created a documentary film with Dr. Atul Gawande, the book’s author, exploring the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the doctors, nurses, and family members who care for them.

Casa de la Luz is hosting a free screening of Being Mortal at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd, on September 13 at 7:30 p.m. After the screening, we’ll have a short panel discussion with our local experts.

Featured panelists:

Dr. James Nicolai, Associate Medical Director for Casa de la Luz

Callene Bentoncoury, BSN, Administrator for Casa de la Luz

Dana Cooper, TV and radio host and sports marketing consultant who will share his personal hospice care experiences

Panel moderator:

Frank Williams, Director of Social Services for Casa de la Luz and Co-Chair for the End-of-Life Care Coalition
