The Conversation: A Revolutionary Plan for End-of-Life Care
By Angelo E. Volandes
Thursday, June 29 | 12:30pm-1:30pm
Dr. Angelo E. Volandes believes that a life well lived deserves a good ending. Through the stories of seven patients and seven very different end-of-life experiences, he demonstrates that what people who are approaching the end of their lives need most is not new technologies but one simple thing: The Conversation. He argues for a radical re-envisioning of the patient-doctor relationship and offers ways for patients and their families to talk about this difficult issue to ensure that patients will be at the center and in charge of their medical care. This might be the most important conversation you ever have. (Discussion led by Rabbi Adena Blum)
A kosher lunch will be served and registration is required by June 23.
Please email RSVP to Beth Englezos or call 609-987-8100, ext. 126.
The program is open to all and there is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person.
