Discussing Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal:  Medicine and What Matters in the End

January 30, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

A Pioneer Valley Study Group

Friday January 30, 2015
7 pm to 9 pm
At the home of Jane Kristal, Amherst (directions below)
With wine and cheese
This is a self guided study group.
This is a different format for the study group, as no CECs will be offered and there will be no formal presentation. Instead, the hope is that each person who attends will have read Gawande’s book and will come to the meeting with ideas and questions for us all. We look forward to trying this new format (not to replace the CEC study groups) to see if we can plan different ways of getting together more informally with a common focus.
