Being Mortal: A Book Discussion - A Turner Senior Wellness Program
In "Being Mortal", author Atul Gawande, MD, discusses “the medicalization of mortality” and its consequences, including loss of independence, separation from loved ones and the financial strains affecting patients and families. This book discussion group, facilitated by Sheryl Kurze, a physician with 25 years experience in primary and end-of-life care, allows participants to reflect on the care of their loved ones and on the care they may want for themselves in the future. This knowledge will help you consider when less-is-more might be the best care plan possible. The instructor is board-certified in internal, hospice and palliative medicine. The Turner Senior Wellness Program, like OLLI, is a community program of the U-M Geriatrics Center. To register, please call Turner Senior Wellness Program at (734) 998-9353.
