WFAE's Public Conversations Looks at End-of-Life Decisions

Death. It's not something we want to think about, but everyone will face it, whether it's for ourselves or loved ones. Individuals, families and health care providers face many choices and challenges when it comes to end-of-life planning and care.

WFAE's Public Conversations Series will address these issues during its next community forum. "End-of-Life Planning and Choices" is Thurs., Feb. 12, at 7 p.m., at Levine Center for the Arts - Wells Fargo Auditorium.

Moderated by WFAE's Mark Rumsey, the conversation will explore issues about "how we die," advance directives, how we talk or don't talk about death. Audience members and panelists will also discuss hospice and palliative care, and spiritual and ethical considerations.
