THE POWER OF PLANNING – Making Critical Ethical, Medical and Legal Decisions in Advance of Health Crises
February 7 @ 5:30 pm
Join us for “The Power of Planning – Making Critical Ethical, Medical, and Legal Decisions in Advance of a Healthcare Crisis” on February 7, 2019 at 5:30pm. The time when an individual is terminally ill or incapacitated is not ideal to address the myriad issues that arise in these circumstances. This program will discuss the challenges presented by incapacity and terminal illness and how having advanced directives in place allows for control and independence to the maximum extent possible. The program will be held at CaringKind, 360 Lexington Avenue, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10017.
