An introduction to the incredible challenges people are facing today from birth to death in an era of life-shaping technologies.  Every adult should have an advance directive to identify who should make medical decisions for them when they become unable to do so--and what values should guide them.

Since this latter issue has become so pressing in a time of pandemic--and our membership tends to be older--the idea here is not just to educate our people about the need for advance directives but to follow that up with a free, optional, opportunity to be guided in actually completing an advance directive (Part 2) 

Part 2 will be available on Tuesday, September 2 from 10am-11am for those who wish more information.
