Advance Medical Directives: A Gift to Yourself and Your Loved Ones
7-8:30pm | Time Out Youth Center
Workshop presenters: Candice Whiteside, Care Weavers & Connie J. Vetter, Attorney at Law, PLLC
92% of people say that having a conversation about their end of life directives is important… 32% of them have actually done so. Join us for an easy, non-threatening way to start a conversation with family and friends about what matters to you most and learn about legal medical directives to carry out your wishes. Objectives: (1) learn more about yourself and the people you care about, (2) think about and discuss how you want to be treated if you become seriously ill, and (3) start translating your wishes into documentation including Health Care Directives.
Free Admission. Must RSVP so we have a packet of info ready for you.
