woman watching man sign documentJoin Creek County Literacy Program on Tuesday, January 15 at 11:00 am for a free workshop on Living Wills, also known as Advance Directives for Health Care. Open to the public, this informative workshop will be held at Creek County Literacy Program, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa.

The Oklahoma Advance Directive for Health Care is a form created by the Oklahoma Statutes that allows individuals to:

• instruct your attending physician whether or not you wish to be given life-sustaining treatments and artificially administered food and water and to give other medical directions that impact end of life,
• appoint a health care proxy (such as your spouse or adult child) to make whatever medical treatment decisions you could make if you were able,
• direct donation of all of some of your organs as anatomical gifts.

Oklahoma Statutory Advance Directive forms will be provided at no cost to workshop attendees who can execute them at the workshop if they wish.

The workshop will be led by John Lieber, who is an Oklahoma attorney and registered nurse.

Learn About and Execute a Living Will is a health literacy outreach project of Creek County Literacy Program, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, with funding provided by the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
