2017 NATIONAL HEALTHCARE DECISIONS DAY/week - April 16-22, 2017
Programs do not need to be held during this week.
It always seems too early, until it is too late.
The Elder Law and Special Needs Section is pleased to sponsor the 2017 Mitchell Rabbino National Healthcare Decisions Day to inform the public about advanced directives. We hope to educate as many New Yorkers as we can about the importance of advanced directives.
Through this public service project, volunteer lawyers will give free presentations (approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour) explaining legal procedures and documents to help New Yorkers make better, more informed healthcare and financial decisions. Topics include: Why you need a will, the differences between living wills and health care proxies, purpose of a power of attorney.
