Screening of Documentary Opens Discussion on End-of-Life Care



Fauquier Hospital will host a screening of the documentary Being Mortal at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 22, in the hospital’s Sycamore Room. A discussion will follow the movie.

Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, the film explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness, and their relationships with the doctors, nurses and family members who care for them.

The screening is sponsored by Capital Caring and Fauquier Hospital. Healthcare providers and the general public are invited. For more information, contact Chip Cagle at ccagle@capitalcaring.org.
