|Session||First 6 weeks 9/13|
This course is based on Being Mortal, written by best selling author, Atul Gawande. M.D. Gawande explores the many facets involved as we face the end of our lives. He writes, 'We have been wrong about what our job is in medicine. We think it is to insure health and survival. But really, ...it is to enable well being.' We will use this book as well as many other sources to inform our conversation about this important topic.
