Defining Hope Documentary – Updated Screenings

More ANA-Michigan Regions have scheduled screenings of Defining Hope. See the updated list below.

Defining Hope is a documentary that weaves the stories of patients with life-threatening illness, and the nurses who guide them as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for and how that hope evolves. It is about optimism and helps us define what ‘quality of life’ really means.
