Medical Directives, Wills and Other Healthcare Decisions with Local Attorney, Suzan Herskowitz
17 April 2019
We were in the studio for a conversation with local attorney, Suzan Herskowitz to talk about medical directives, wills and other end-of-life decisions that can be made today, before there’s a crisis.
National Healthcare Decisions Day was Tuesday, April 16, 2019 and it prompted a conversation a few weeks ago with Tina & Jodi from Valley Health about the types of decisions that you should make from a medical perspective.

We spoke with Suzan about those same decisions from a legal perspective. She explained what the various terms mean, what decisions they actually authorize and walked us through some scenarios about having (and not having) medical directives & wills in place when the need for them arise.
During our conversation, Suzan referenced the Conversation Starter Kit. You can download that here: ConversationProject-ConvoStarterKit-English
