Essentia Health to offer free advance care planning class in West Duluth

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 the Essentia Health-West Duluth Clinic on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 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 Oct. 16 at the West Duluth Clinic, 4212 Grand Avenue. For more information, contact Wanda Paulsen at (218) 786-1310.
