Consider the Conversation 2

April 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

A Discussion on Advance Care Planning

Join us for a free discussion on advance care planning. Attendees will have the opportunity to view clips of the Emmy-nominated documentary “Consider the Conversation 2: Stories about Cure, Relief, and Comfort.” The film highlights the value of palliative care and shows viewers what end-of-life conversations with medical professionals look like, sound like and feel like. It shares first-hand accounts of doctors, caregivers and patients as they navigate the end-of-life journey and the questions and decisions that go along with fighting disease.

The discussion will feature a special Q&A panel of advance care planning experts.
