A free screening and discussion of the PBS Frontline film “Being Mortal,” based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande of Harvard Medical School, is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 at Putnam County Hospital.

The film is credited with sparking national conversation that brings medical professionals and community members together to discuss what matters most to patients and families facing difficult treatment decisions and how to have such conversations ahead of a medical crisis.

Presented in the third-floor classrooms at PCH, the film is sponsored by the Putnam County Hospice and Palliative Care Association and Putnam County Hospital.
