I realize that Atul Gawande is becoming a leitmotif of this site, but I love him so much and can’t stop writing about his work. PBS just created a 54-minute documentary based on his book, Being Mortal, in which Gawande examines how he and other physicians struggle to talk with patients about death and dying. It’s honest, brave and beautiful.
You can watch a three-minute excerpt here:
And you can watch the full documentary (for free) on PBS. Highly recommended. xo
