National Healthcare Decisions Day: What My Loved Ones Need To Know

Tuesday, April 122:00—3:00 PMRoadrunner RoomThomas Branigan Memorial Library200 E. Picacho Ave., Las Cruces, NM, 88001

The Thomas Branigan Memorial Library and MaryKay Brady invite you to a presentation on “What My Loved Ones Need To Know.” What matters to you? What important healthcare decisions do you want to make for yourself? Join us April 12th at 2 PM for a dynamic presentation and discussion by MaryKay Brady covering topics in relation to National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD). National Healthcare Decisions Day is an initiative to encourage people to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be. National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to inspire, educate, and empower the public about the importance of advance care planning.

MaryKay is retired from a thirty-year career in banking but maintains a very busy volunteer life. Active with several hospice organizations as an end-of-life doula and founder of Friends of Rockhound State Park, as well as a trained Master Gardener with NMSU, life is not dull in her world. A quest for learning led her to the New Mexico End of Life Options Coalition and she began a book club to discuss Barbara Coombs Lee’s book Finish Strong: Putting YOUR Priorities First at Life’s End. The book club led to the growth of the Las Cruces Action Team. With the authorization of the New Mexico aid in dying law, she hopes to share her caring and compassionate traits with all New Mexicans.
