About This Event
When asked how we want to die, most of us wish to die peacefully in our sleep. But life doesn't always end the way we'd like for it to. Dr. Albert Leonardo, medical director of Mercy Supportive and Palliative Care, will discuss end-of-life processes and medical care to provide a realistic picture of how we die as medical advancements offer to prolong our lives at any cost, and the differences between hospice and palliative care and the importance of advance care planning. This event is part of the Springfield-Greene County Library District’s series on Death & Dying: Conversations on End-of-Life Matters. Call 882-0714 for more information.
