Being Mortal Project Description

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Being Mortal screening site in your community!

Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) has coordinated a nationwide public awareness campaign on the importance of talking about end-of-life preferences and goals with loved ones and medical professionals.

Underwritten by the John and Wauna Harman Foundation, the project uses PBS’s FRONTLINE film Being Mortal, based on the book of the same name by Atul Gawande, MD, to educate audiences and encourage people to take concrete steps to identify and communicate their wishes for end-of-life care.

Selected sites will engage both medical professionals and the general public and will receive:

• The Being Mortal DVD
• Outreach tools
• Audience materials
• Discussion guides
• Media support, and more

All program materials will be provided at no charge to selected host screening sites.
