UF Health is joining other organizations around the country to observe National Healthcare Decisions Day. We encourage everyone 18 and older to complete an advance directive, also called a living will, and designate a health care surrogate to speak on their behalf if the need arises.
Learn how to take a proactive, positive approach to end-of-life planning decisions. Join us from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16 in the UF Health Shands Hospital Atrium. Staff will provide resources, help participants complete the forms and scan advance directives into the UF Health medical records system.
At the event, staff will address these topics: When to begin thinking about a living will, which forms to complete and where to send them, and how to be sure your wishes will be properly followed.
