Being Mortal examines how doctors can help terminally ill patients make the most of the time they have left. Should they undergo any treatment, no matter how agonizing, in order to stay alive? Or should they try to spend as much quality time as possible with the people they love.

We want to hear from you. On Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, Being Mortal producer Tom Jennings will take your questions about end-of-life care, honesty, and mortality in a conversation with Kaiser Health News correspondent Jenny Gold. We hope you’ll join us to talk about how the film has affected you. We would like to thank Kaiser Health News for partnering with us on the chat.

You can leave a question below starting now and join us on Thursday for the live conversation.
