Oct. 21, 2016 — On Nov. 1, Marshall Medical Center will host a class
that explains the details of POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining
Treatment) and Advance Directives. Anyone from the community looking to
learn about these legal end-of-life care documents is encouraged to attend.
Facilitated by Marshall Social Worker Lhia Casazza, MSW, the event is scheduled
from 9 a.m. to noon at Marshall Medical Center Cameron Park, 3581 Palmer
Dr. Ste. 501. Admission is free, but space is limited to 28 people. A
top priority of the event is to teach participants how to initiate discussions
with family members about such important but sensitive topics.
