Special Event - Atul Gawande Speaking
To celebrate its 15th anniversary and the Village movement it inspired, Beacon Hill Village in Boston has invited Villages around the country to participate "virtually" in an event featuring Dr. Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, author of the seminal book, Being Mortal. The conversation, entitled “Being Mortal’s Villages: The Value of Community and Choice as We Grow Older,” will feature a discussion on aging, living life with purpose, and how we can transform the possibilities for the later chapters of everyone’s lives.
This event will be live-streamed to Villages across the United States. Love Living at Home, with our community partners, Tompkins County Office for the Aging and Lifelong, will broadcast the live event at Cinemapolis.
Doors open at 4:00 PM. We will gather in the theatre at 4:45 for a brief welcome. The broadcast is from 5:00-6:00. You are invited to remain for a moderated local dialogue about aging in community in Tompkins County until 6:30 PM.
This is an amazing opportunity to learn about a topic near to our hearts.
Refreshments will be available for purchase at Cinnemapolis.
