Hospice of the Red River Valley will host a film screening and discussion about end-of-life care from 4 to 6 p.m. April 27 at Calvary Lutheran Church in Grand Forks.

The event will include screening of the Emmy-nominated documentary film, "Being Mortal," followed by a conversation on how to identify and communicate preferences concerning end-of-life care.

The film delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness, and sheds light on how a medical system focused on a cure often leaves out conversations necessary for the patient's wishes to be understood and honored at the end, said Kelly Krenzel, Hospice communications specialist.

Dr. Tricia Langlois, Hospice medical director, will guide group discussion after the film is shown.

The event is free; pre-registration is required at bit.ly/beingmortalGF or by calling (701) 356-1525.
