Making Health Care Decisions for Others
Featured Topic of Lecture at Senior Center

 MAILED:  March 17, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — The Center for Health and Aging Services Excellence at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, along with UW-Stout and the Red Cedar Medical Center in Menomonie, will offer “Making Health Care Decisions for Incapacitated Elders: A Workshop for Family, Friends and Professionals” as part of the second annual Gerontology Lecture Series.

The lecture will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 24, at the L.E. Phillips Senior Center in Eau Claire. Attendees are encouraged to park on the side streets surrounding the facility.

The session will explore timely topics relating to the field of gerontology and will focus on understanding the role of surrogate decision-makers when recognizing that others are unable to make their own health care decisions. This session will also highlight ethical standards in surrogate decision-making.

This discussion will be led by Dr. Jan Hare, professor of human development and family studies at UW-Stout.

For more information, contact Meredith Wolf at wolfm@uwec.edu or (715) 836-3543. The Gerontology Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
