A medical crisis can hit at any age. Now is the time to plan so you can be sure to get the health care you want, even when you are unable to speak for yourself. That is why the Snohomish County Health Leadership Coalition has launched a community initiative to promote advance care planning. At this forum, experts will offer advice and answer questions related to this critical issue. They are:
Joanne Roberts, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett
Jim Steinruck, Chief Executive Officer, Senior Services of Snohomish County
Reverend Eileen Hanson, Pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church
They will be joined by Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory, executive director of Sno-Isle Libaries, who will share her family's experiences.
Discussion moderator will be Ed Bremer, news and public affairs director for KSER-FM radio.
Edmonds Center for the Arts is located at 410 4th Avenue North. Light refreshments will be available for audience members. For those unable to attend, this event will be live-streamed, viewable online at sno-isle.org.
