West Sacramento Event: May 20th, 2019

The Yolo Coalition to Honor Choices is hosting this opportunity to talk about your wishes during a serious illness or at end-of-life.  Our goal is to provide education and support to complete your written directives, as well as to speak with your family and your physician about your wishes.  We’ll watch the Frontline film Being Mortal, followed by facilitated discussion.

Based on the best-selling book by Atul Gawande, MD, Being Mortal explores the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness, and their relationships with the physicians who treat them.  See the film and be part of a national conversation that brings medical professionals and community members together around the shared responsibility of discussing what matters most to patients and families facing difficult treatment decisions and how to have these conversations ahead of a medical crisis.
