Tuesday, Feb. 17
11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Ezell Center, Paul Rogers Board Room
Cost: $20 per person, includes box lunch and lecture
Instructor: Dorcas Mansell
MD, MPH and Lipscomb Alumna

Most of us have a vision about how we want to die - at home surrounded by friends and family. Unfortunately, many people spend the end of their life in a hospital. They suffer invasive measures when there is little or no hope of returning to a full life. Advance directives are a means for you to plan how you want to die. In this lunch and learn, we will discuss living wills and durable power of attorneys for health care and explain the pros and cons of each. We hope that this will encourage you to complete an advance directive.

One of the greatest periods of economic growth ever seen, wealthy Americans prospered like never before during what Mark Twain called the “Gilded Age.” The Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate is a fitting symbol of that rise to power of the new American aristocracy.
