Understanding comes from knowing. When members of the community think about how to make a difference in the world after death creating a legacy is often considered. Leaving a legacy might include sharing family history and personal values that you hope to have live on. Legacy might also mean being an organ or full-body donor to improve the quality of life for others and further medical knowledge. This webinar will focus on what it means to create a legacy and ways to do this, something that we all can think about sooner rather than later to be sure our wishes are known and respected.
Expand our understanding of what it means to create a legacy and resources available to assist with this.
Learn about ways to create a personal legacy through family stories, sharing of values and hopes for future generations.
Learn about options for organ donation and full-body donation to improve the quality of life for others.
