Essentia Health to offer free advance care planning class in Superior

What if a sudden illness or injury leaves you unable to speak for yourself? Who would speak for you? What would you want them to know about your values and wishes?

A free advance care planning class hosted by Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Superior Clinic on Monday, Nov. 4, will highlight the steps necessary to ensure you’re prepared for this kind of scenario. In addition to fostering thought-provoking discussion, the class will help you learn the vocabulary, reflect on your values, explore goals for treatment and work toward completing a health care directive.

The class runs from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Nov. 4 at Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Superior Clinic, 3500 Tower Avenue. For more information, contact Wanda Paulsen at (218) 786-1310.
