In celebration of National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16, three local health professionals will hold a Q&A to discuss “Strategy on Advance Directives” from 6-7 p.m. in Stevenson Center Room 1100. The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by Charted Healthcare Planning Coalition. The panelists are Dr. Aruna Josyula, Geriatric Medicine, Mercy Health; Dr. Gerald Harriman, Hospice & Palliative Care, Harbor Hospice; and Robin Anderson, Palliative Care, Mercy Health. Immediately following the discussion, Devan Stahl, an assistant professor in Michigan State University’s Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences, will address “Ethical Challenges to Advance Care Planning” at 7 p.m. in Stevenson Center Room 1100. “End of life planning is essential to a life well lived,” said Andy Wible, MCC philosophy instructor and coordinator of the MCC Lecture Series. “Muskegon Community College is thrilled to partner with Charted to bring Dr. Stahl and an astute local panel of practitioners to campus. Advance care planning allows us to live the lives we want to live and brings us closer as families and as a community.” For more information, contact Andy Wible at (231) 777-0626.
