On Sunday evening, March 2nd, the Emmaus Health Committee of St. Edward’s Church is sponsoring an educational presentation. This is the first in what we hope to be an ongoing series that will address topics of common interest regarding health and wellness. The lecture will run from 7:00-8:30 in the Parish Hall.
A parishioner and a physician, Dr. Jim Suojanen, will discuss concerns we all share to preserve human dignity in times of serious illness and at the end of life. Jim will explain Living Wills and Advanced Directives as well as how to select a Health Care Proxy. Approved forms will be available. He will also examine some of the problems associated with legally sanctioned suicide using prescribed medications. There will be an opportunity for questions, answers and discussion.
Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for what promises to be an informative and thought-provoking event. This lecture series is open to the whole community; please bring a friend.
