The Long Goodbye
Thank you for attending "The Long Goodbye, One of the most important conversations you should have," featuring Time Magazine columnist and best-selling author Joe Klein. The event also featured Dr. Raymond L. Spence and Dr. Laurie Lyckholm.
The event was a huge success, and a great opportunity and moment for the community. Klein addressed a large crowd on Thursday, March 21 at The Steward School, and shared his own experiences making healthcare decisions for his parents as their health steadily declined. He reflected on the fact that the thought of talking to his parents in detail about the way they would live the last days of the life was never really an option.
This is an ongoing conversation within the community and your family, and we encourage you to check back here with us over the next couple of weeks for follow up information. Below are helpful resources available about the choices you and your family face during this time.
