    How to Get the Death You Want

    Instructor: John Abraham – Certified Fellow in Thanatology
    How to prepare for death – “Not ‘If’ but When”. Most of us, about 80%, will die some sort of managed death. The best manager is you! This class will teach you how to have your wishes honored regarding end-of-life care. The appalling fact is that 70% to 80% of the time, your wishes unfortunately will NOT be honored, even with a living will and other advance directives. Discover how you can change this! If you know how, you can make sure your wishes ARE honored. Learn the importance of an “advocate” and how to select, equip, and empower your advocate and yourself, and how to navigate hospitalization.
