Webinar Series: Bringing Advance Care Planning Conversations to Your Congregation

Congregations are ideal settings for beginning to talk about what matters most to people when it comes to making decisions about the kind of health care they want and don’t want in the face of very serious illness. For six weeks, The Conversation Project’s advisor to faith, Rosemary Lloyd, hosted a free, web-based course on how to infuse having conversations about crucial, values-centered health care decision-making into the life and work of faith communities.
