'Defining Hope' Movie & Mixer Draws 100-Plus To Denver's Sie FilmCenter

Posted: Nov. 20, 2017

The 'Defining Hope' Movie & Mixer organized by the Hospice & Palliative Care Association of the Rockies and the Colorado Nurses Association was a big success, drawing 100-plus attendees last week to Denver's Sie FilmCenter. 

The movie follows eight patients with life-threatening illness, and the nurses who guide them to make critical choices along the way as they face death, embrace hope, and ultimately redefine what makes life worth living. It is about optimism and helps us define what 'quality of life' really means. This movie explores what makes life worth living and what to do for ourselves and our loved ones as we get closer to the end of life. Through the stories of patients, families, nurses, and healthcare professionals, the conversation around quality end-of-life care is brought to the forefront. Defining Hope: Official Trailer

The film is being released in limited screenings across the country in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

Once again, thanks to our event sponsors & exhibitors, who helped defray costs!
