Surgeon and bestselling author Atul Gawande was recently the subject of a Frontline documentary that looked at how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending. The documentary will be screened on Monday April 20, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Temple Emanu-El-Beth-Sholom (4100 Sherbrooke Street West), entrance at 395 Elm Ave. A discussion with Sue Britton, registered nurse, and Zelda Freitas, social worker, will follow. Free of charge. Registration not required. For further information, please contact The Council on Palliative Care by email.
