In recognition of National Healthcare Decisions Day, the public is invited to attend a free screening of the documentary, “Consider the Conversation.” The film includes interviews about end-of-life with patients, families, health care professionals, clergy and national experts. Following the documentary, a panel of local experts will discuss the film and related end-of-life issues. Event planners hope to inspire dialogue between patients, family members and physicians about end-of-life issues and seek to promote the film’s message that end-of-life is a “normal process rich in opportunity for human development.”
