“I’ll Have it my Way”: End of Life Planning

In observation of National Healthcare Decisions Day, Advocate BroMenn Medical Center will host a free presentation by Hattie Bryant, author of “I’ll Have it my Way: Taking Control of End-of-Life Decisions,” on Monday, April 16 at 7 p.m. in the hospital’s Conference Center, 1304 Franklin Ave., Normal.

Organized by the hospital’s Department of Mission and Spiritual Care and the Advocate BroMenn Delegate Church Association, the program will focus on Bryant’s personal experience with end-of-life planning and her determination to help others navigate the challenges involved.

Bryant’s book is a tool for patients and their families to minimize the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life health care wishes are not clearly spelled out and known in advance. The first 75 attendees at the Advocate BroMenn event will receive a free copy of the book.

A former adult educator and presenter in the field of small business leadership and management, Bryant and her husband also created and produced the PBS television series, “Small Business School.” After a stressful experience with her mother’s passing in 1990, Bryant began to think more about end-of-life planning and care. For the next 25 years, she educated herself on the subject, including studying at the University of Southern California Graduate School of Gerontology. Her quest ultimately culminated in the “I’ll Have it my Way” book and video series, published in 2015.

Bryant’s presentation on April 16 is open to the public and requires no advance registration. For more information, contact the Advocate BroMenn Department of Mission and Spiritual Care, 309-268-5499.
