The Chautauqua-Wawasee organization located at Oakwood Resort has planned a discussion of the book Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. Commenting on this book, Time Magazine said “This should be mandatory reading for every American”.
Riveting, honest, and humane, Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a
good death but a good life-all the way to the very end. This topic has impact on our own perspective and how we deal with life and death from a family, parent, sibling, patient and healthcare provider point of view.
Dr. Jeffrey Brown, Medical Director of Parkview’s Home Health and Hospice organization will be
participating in the discussion.
Books are available through the Evergreen system; extra copies are available for checkout at the
Syracuse Public Library.
