Our first “Life is a Journey” educational event attracted more than 200 people interested in learning about Advance Care Planning.
Life is a Journey focused on encouraging participants to complete advance care planning – have conversations about unexpected and difficult healthcare challenges they could face.
Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, author of the epilogue to her husband’s #1 bestselling book “When Breath Becomes Air” was the featured speaker. Former ABC-7 TV news anchor Ron Magers and his wife, Elise, who is a JourneyCare Board Member, moderated the event.
