Join us for a valuable opportunity to learn about advance care planning and important decisions you may want to make related to the end of your life. Learn the seven key criteria to consider when selecting a family member or friend who would best help you with those decisions, especially if you become unable to speak for yourself.
This program, relevant for adults of all ages, will also provide an even-handed description of California’s new law authorizing assisted suicide. We expect many excellent questions and different points of view.
