"Being Mortal"
Film Screening and Discussion

Wednesday, May 3, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Halldorson Hall

If you had to miss the first presentation in March, here is your chance to see the film and be part of the national conversation: the one that brings medical professionals and family members together around the shared responsibility of discussing difficult treatment decisions – and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis.

Join us for a screening and discussion of the PBS FRONTLINE film Being Mortal. Based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, this documentary explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the physicians who treat them.

Leading our discussion will be our Senior Pastor, Ed Halldorson, along with his very own daughter, Dr. Emily Bakosi. We’ll look at these issues from the unique perspective of faith and medicine. You won’t want to miss this opportunity.

This screening will be free and open to our community at large. Seats are limited, so RSVP’s are a must. Please visit the church website: www.pcct-nj.org or call the church office at (973) 635-2340 to secure your spot.

We live in a beautiful, prosperous community. And yet we have homeless men, women, and children and a large number of working poor right in our midst. Did you know that 1 in every 30 children in America are homeless? Learn about the unseen poverty in Morris County and what we can do as Christians to make a difference. A representative from Homeless Solutions will be here to educate us about the crisis in our own back yard and how we can help.

The focus of the training is to help both family and professional caregivers to learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental illness in seniors, gain the tools necessary to have the appropriate conversation with a senior dealing with a mental health challenge or crisis, and then connect that senior with the best-suited professional help. We've offered this course in a variety of locations throughout Morris County in order to train as many caregivers as possible.
