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, a panel of experts--and someone who can share her family's experiences-- will offer advice and answer questions related to this critical issue. The panelists 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
Sno-Isle Libraries' Issues That Matter programs are meant to encourage community conversations on high-profile topics. These events are free and open to the public. Funding is provided by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation. Our partners are KSER-FM and the Daily Herald.
