Whose Life (and Death) Is It?
Linda Good, M.D.
Linda Good MD has gained understanding of advanced care planning for managing end-of- life decisions from her 45 years of experience as a nurse and a family physician and also from her personal opportunities as a daughter being an advocate for her parents. She believes that patient and fami- ly communication with health care providers is fundamental, but challenging for many legal, nancial, scienti c, spiritual, and moral reasons. She will jumpstart a lively discussion of pathways for orchestrating a good death for ourselves and those we care about and conclude with some pointers that may be helpful as we make this journey together. As Ram Doss said: “We are all walking each other home.”
The First United Methodist Church of Germantown (FUMCOG) is a diverse, urban community of faith that seeks to experience and worship God through Jesus’ message of love and inclusion and the mystery of grace expressed through his life. We affirm our commitment by working together, taking risks for social justice and peace in our community, our city, our nation and our world.
