About the Take Charge seminar and film series

Presented by the Channing House ELIPSIS Series and Mission Hospice & Home Care, this event is part of a free, four-part series that will help you explore and communicate what dying well means to you in the realities of health care today.

Documentary films, discussions led by experts, and practical tools will help you learn about and take charge of the one thing we will all experience, yet few talk about. Each participant will receive a Take Charge advance care planning toolkit and individual support to create their plan.

The Take Charge series is open to everyone. Bring a friend or family member! Please register for each session individually:

Session 1: Introducing the Take Charge Series (October 10)

Session 2: Talking about What Matters Most (October 17)

Session 3: Myths & Facts about End-of-Life Choices (October 24)

Session 4: Taking Charge! (October 31)
