How are you going to die? Will it be quick and painless or slow and agonizing? Will you be communicating with your loved ones until the very end, or will you slip in and out of consciousness relying on others to guess what you want done? This talk will not answer any of those questions. Instead, this talk will give you some tools to help ensure you can communicate to your loved ones and doctors if you are unable to communicate when you need to. Local attorney Ken Burgess of Poyner Spruill will tell you about what living wills and healthcare powers of attorney can and cannot do and how you can fill them out and file them yourselves. Sponsored by the Health Law Society. For questions, contact Kevin Simmons at email@example.com.
The annual celebration of the Law School’s international students and scholars will be held Sept. 23 – 27.
