Our speaker for our May 11, 2019 meeting will be Lisa Caparella, MSW, LCSW, Manager of Patient Welcome and Support Center, Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, Jefferson University. 

Lisa will discuss advanced care planning. Some people assume that advanced care planning is all about legal documents like last wills and testaments or health care proxies.  Actually, it is broader than this and is all about making decisions about the care you would want to receive if you become unable to speak for yourself. These are your decisions to make, regardless of what you choose for your care.

Please come to learn about this important topic.

Lisa's slides are available as an attachment at the bottom of this page.
