Advance care planning classes offered to public at Essentia Health

Essentia Health is offering the public the opportunity to learn more about advance care planning.  Classes will help educate people on advance care planning, which is the kind of care you would want if you became seriously ill or injured or unable to speak for yourself. 

“Advance care planning is a way for patients to think about, talk about and write down their wishes for future health care,” says Wanda Paulsen, who manages the program.  “Our hope is that every adult over the age of 18 will take time to complete an advance directive.” 

Classes will be held:

Essentia Health-Hermantown Clinic, 4855 W. Arrowhead Road

  • 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 6

Essentia Health-Superior, 3500 Tower Ave., Community Room, First floor

  • 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 26

Essentia Health-West Duluth Clinic, 4212 Grand Ave.

  • 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. March 13

Classes are free and open to the public.  You do not need to pre-register to attend.  For more information, please contact Paulsen at (218) 786-1310.
