April 11, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Speaker: Ed Long, JD
Topic: The Six Keys to Care Planning Success
Care planning is the way you can obtain the health and medical care you want and avoid the care you don’t want, even if you’re ill and can’t speak for yourself. In his 20+ years serving on hospital bioethics committees and his work as an elder law attorney, Ed Long has seen care planning (or the lack thereof) produce results ranging from successful to dreadful. In this program Ed shares the keys to care planning success.
