Making Decisions While Living Under the Threat of COVID-19

Sept 9, 2:00-3:30pm

Jointly sponsored by End of Life Choices New York and Death with Dignity-Albany 


We are all living under challenging constraints due to the Coronavirus. There is an ever-present fear about contracting the disease, and experiencing a COVID-related emergency that would require hospitalization. During this time of uncertainty, what is within our control to address our concerns and plan ahead?

Join us via Zoom for a discussion on practical steps to address your concerns and how to effectively communicate and implement your wishes about medical interventions before a crisis occurs. Opportunities to ask questions will be provided.
