Description

End of Life Choices New York & the WNBA New York Liberty have partnered for a fun and educational night!


The New York Liberty have recently moved from their home at Madison Square Garden to the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. Join us on June 26th to learn more about your end of life care rights and cheer on a great basketball team in their new stadium.

A part of the ticket sales will go to End of Life Choices New York. Please bring a friend or family members and join us for this great night to help support our education, advocacy, and counseling services in New York State.

Your 25.00 ticket includes:

  • Admission to the New York Liberty game against the Phoenix Mercury.
  • "Plan Like a Champion: How to get your end of life wishes respected and receive quality care" presented by EOLCNY Executive Director Emeritus and Senior Consultant David Leven. This talk will provide a guide to navigating today's healthcare system. Some things you will learn:
    • What your important rights are regarding getting health care that you want and not receiving unwanted health care.
    • Why it is so important to inform loved ones and your doctors about your end of life care goals and treatment preferences, and to complete a health care proxy.
    • What is the Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment form (MOLST) form and when and how should the form be completed.
    • What is palliative care and how and when might it benefit you. What are relevant palliative care laws that you should know about.
    • Why many doctors undertreat pain and how you can get effective pain treatment.
    • How hospices provide for a better quality of life and a more peaceful death and the problems with accessing hospice.
    • What end of life options you have, in addition to hospice, that can help ensure that you control the timing and circumstances of your death and the quality of your death.
  • Raffle ticket for New York Liberty giveaways (autographed jersey, autographed ball, etc)
