“Consider the Conversation is an inspiring film that explores our struggles with death and dying in America, how we as Americans are accustomed to a ‘more is better’ approach to medical care, and how our own personal fears prevent us from discussions conversations about end of life care,” said Danielle Belser, MD at Crystal Run Healthcare. “This documentary encourages us to embrace our fears about death and dying and to have these important conversations; you might be surprised where they take you.”
