Join us tonight for a passionate argument for planning end-of-life care. As physician, daughter, and student of American health care, Margaret Overton pulls from all corners, showing us the emotional, financial and physical costs of not being prepared. Her daily rounds reveal harrowing consequences, her studies at Harvard highlight the industry's limits, and her own aging parents make her case universal. Deeply felt, frankly told, this book will challenge you - and then help you - to make your own choices about end-of-life care. This event is sponsored by The Final Acts Project with the support of the Mind Science Foundation, the St. David's Foundation, and the Humanities Texas Foundation.
