Advanced Health Care Directives

The Grand Rapids Area Library held a program in the, “Get Your Ducks in a Row,” series on Thursday, May 11. The featured topic was advanced health care directives, and was presented by Lori Hendrickson. During her presentation she shared: what a health care directive is, why it’s important for any adult to have one, and how to create it and make it legal. ICTV staff was a part of the audience, and recorded this important presentation for everyone to see. Watch it on ICTV’s Public Access Channel beginning on Monday, May 22 at 8:00pm.
