Current Borchard Fellows Kandice Jung and Julie Gilgoff, along with former fellow Catheryn Koss co-presented the workshop, "Planning for Incapacity and the End of Life" at the 2018 Annual Conference of the American Society on Aging on March 26 in San Francisco. They shared information about legal documents, potential problems when poor or no planning has occurred, and how to work with surrogates. The audience was made up of social workers, health care practitioners, case managers, and other professionals working with older adults. Their Power Point Presentation is available as an attachment below.

Catheryn Koss, who now serves as the Center's Academic Research Program Coordinator, also co-presented with David Godfrey of the ABA Commission on Law and Aging. The topic of their workshop was, "Integrating Supported Decision-Making Into Advance Care Planning."
