Your Call: How does modern medicine tackle dying?

FL_BeingMortal2_embed.jpg

On the February 9th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tom Jennings, director of the Frontline documentary Being Mortal. The film explores the relationships between doctors and patients nearing the end of life, and how doctors struggle to talk honestly and openly with their terminally ill patients. How can the medical profession better help patients navigate the final chapters of their lives with dignity? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

Tom Jennings, award winning documentary filmmaker, director of FRONTLINE's  documentary Being Mortal
