"The two big unfixables are aging and dying. You can't fix those." In BEING MORTAL, Dr, Atul Gawande explores the challenges physicians and patients face when it comes to death and dying.
At issue, how we can live out the final chapter of our lives with clear direction and purpose? On Feb. 10, FRONTLINE presents "Being Mortal." This documentary is based on New York Time best selling author Dr. Gawande's new book, "Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End."
