TSF Book Club | “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande

December 13, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

You’re invited to join TSF’s next book club meeting on November 29th, during which we’ll discuss “Being Mortal” by Dr. Atul Gawande.
From Atul Gawande, a book that has the potential to change medicine – and lives.
Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they can eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients’ anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that shorten lives instead of improving them. And families go along with all of it.
