Wondering Jews: A Taste of Life

Two special talks, one special afternoon:

With Age Comes Wisdom: Many aspects of living and dying with intention involve the decisions we make. We’ll talk about the 10 most important decisions we can think about NOW to make sure that our wishes will be met later, and how to communicate about these decisions with family and friends.

More Control Over Your Life! Health Care Self-Advocacy. Sadly, not all of us, in fact very few of us have a health advocate – a family member, friend, trusted coworker, or a hired professional who can ask questions, write down information, and speak up for you.

Even if you are not facing a chronic condition, learning health self-advocacy help you understand: What is “negotiable” in the health services arena – from bills to lab work to treatment modalities; Hidden ways self-advocacy can save you money; What key issues you should ask about to better understand your illness and get the care and resources you need;

How a health care provider thinks. An important tool for better communication between you and your provider.
