Atul Gawande Webinar

Monday, September 25 at 4:30 pm for 2.5 hours(signup deadline was 3 pm, Sep 22)
St Marks Church 300 A St SE

Webcast with noted surgeon Atul Gawande. Dr. Gawande is the author of the best-selling book, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, and is dedicated to helping seniors age on their own terms. While caring for his own elderly parents, he identified how the U.S. medical system is failing those who are failing, and now, working with hospice nurses, geriatricians and other health care reformers, he offers hope and recommendations on how as a society we can do better. The webcast will feature people who show us how to start the hard conversations and how to ensure we never sacrifice what people really care about. Waterfront Village and Capitol Hill Village are participating as a part of an ongoing a community wide dialogue around longevity. Nationally the webcast is sponsored by Beacon Hill Village and The Village to Village Network as a part of Beacon Hill Villageís 15th anniversary. Beacon Hill started the village concept in that Boston neighborhood; Capitol Hill Village, the nationís second village, and is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Waterfront Village is the newest operating Village in Washington, launching in February 2017 to serve seniors in the Southwest Waterfront and Navy Yard. More information on Waterfront Village is available at, by emailing info@dcwaterfrontvillage .org, or calling 202-656-1834.
