Establishing and Retaining Legal Control Over Important Life Decisions

January 30, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Hammer Health Sciences Center, 701 W. 168 St., New York, NY 10032 312
Wondering if you should have a living will? Thinking of creating a trust for your children? If one of your older loved ones was ill, would you know his or her treatment preferences? Does your family know your wishes if you were ever unable to advocate for yourself legally or medically? These important questions can have significant impact on you and your family. The best ways to make sure that everyone's wishes are followed are through heart-to-heart conversations and having the appropriate legal documents in order. Following this seminar, participants will be better able to: • Understand the legal tools available • Discuss these legal matters with their loved ones • Access information on relevant local and state laws Presenter: Facilitator from Humana/HRI (Columbia University's Employee Assistance Program)
