eastbayacp.orgPROGRAM - Today’s program was tremendous as our own KJ Page walked us through a subject that few want to discuss but all need to have: Advance Care Planning. KJ stressed that we need to do this in order to prevent those we love from having to make decisions without our input. She covered a program called "The East Bay Conversation Project" to help with the process. She encouraged all of us to be proactive. Visit eastbayacp.org for more information. Attached are the informative handouts she distributed. Thanks so much, KJ!
