My Life, My Choices:
Advance Directives as a Tool for Recovery
Wednesday, August 12, 2020
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
You are the expert on your life, including your medical and mental health care, but what happens when you cannot make decisions for yourself due to illness or injury? Who will make those important decisions then? We will discuss how you can prepare for the future and make sure you always have a voice in these important decisions.
Advance Directives are a legal document to direct your future health care if you become incapable of making an informed decision about your care. In this introduction to advance directives in Virginia, you will learn how they work and how to create one for yourself. Bring your questions!
Format: This live Zoom webinar is free of charge and open to all.
Facilitator: Dana Traynham, Senior Attorney, disAbility Law Center of Virginia
