In these workshops, hear from a Registered Nurse and the GIFT staff about how to take control of your healthcare choices especially at the end of life or during a medical crisis. We will explain Advance Care Planning, help you find your values and preferences for medical choices, discuss appointing a medical representative for yourself and document your decisions on the Texas legal forms known as Advance Directives.
