“We Are All Mortal: Are We Prepared for the Expected and Unexpected”
Dr. Tanya Brown, Ph.D., L.P., Dr. Kathy Lombardo, MD., Karen Peterson, BSN
Please join us to begin a conversation most of us avoid...being mortal. At any age, we could face an unexpected life-threatening accident, acute illness, or a change in a chronic condition where we are unable to speak for ourselves or make choices about our healthcare. Our loved ones and physicians need to know our wishes in order to follow them. Tanya Brown, Kathy Lombardo and Karen Peterson will share their experiences and provide input on the following questions: Why is this topic important? What makes it difficult for you to start a conversation about your treatment choices or preferences? When should you have the conversation with your family? How do you start the conversation?
