Meeting Description

We are pleased to announce the Contra Costa County Chapter of the East Bay Conversation Project quarterly meeting on Friday, April 27th, in Walnut Creek.  This meeting is open to anyone who is interested in promoting advance care planning and learning more about the resources available through our project, including presentation and training opportunities. Our committee members join an important community-wide movement to help individuals make their own health care choices.

The goal of the East Bay Conversation Project is to provide resources to promote understanding and engagement in “the conversation” about advance care planning in the East Bay, thereby enabling patients to make their health care treatment wishes known and honored. Advance care planning enhances quality of life by ensuring that plans are developed to address end-of-life care decisions in accordance with personal wishes. The East Bay Conversation Project is supported by grant funding from the Alameda County Measure A Essential Health Care Services Initiative, Better Health East Bay, the John Muir Health Foundation, and the Thomas J. Long Foundation and is administered by the ACCMA Community Health Foundation, a charitable subsidiary of the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association (ACCMA).

To attend, please contact Leslie Dietterick (ldietterick@accma.org) for more information.
