Description

Join us for Choosing and Being An Effective Health Proxy at Sarah Lawrence College.

Advance planning through advance directives, organ donation cards, and living wills help guarantee that we have the quality of health care we desire through all ages and stages of life. Arguably the most critical component of our Advance Care Plan is the choice of a Health Proxy, the person who will make decisions for us if we are incapacitated. Some of us have accepted that role for loved ones, and others of us may be making or re-making that decision. Some may be asking questions such as: What is required of a Health Proxy? What criteria should the Health Proxy meet in order to guarantee our wishes are met? What happens when no Health Proxy has been chosen?

Join the Sarah Lawrence End of Life Care Program for an informative evening that will answer these and your questions too. Attorney Lisa Volpe ’78, and End of Life Care Program faculty member, will lead a distinguished panel from New York Presbyterian-Lawrence Hospital, the Sarah Lawrence End of Life Care Program, Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services. Advance Planning forms for New York State will be provided by The Westchester End of Life Coalition.This program is underwritten by New York Presbyterian-Lawrence Hospital and co-sponsored by Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services and and The Westchester End of Life Coalition.

Tickets are $12. RSVP online at:
