"Planning Ahead" lunch learning session Sept. 25 in Orange City


September 5, 2019

ORANGE CITY, Iowa – Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach will host a “Planning Ahead” lunch learning session on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the ISU Extension and Outreach Sioux County office (400 Central Ave. NW, Orange City). The session and light lunch are free and open to the public.

Jan Monahan, Human Sciences Specialist in Family Finance with ISU Extension and Outreach, who will present the program, said that the session is all about planning ahead in case of emergencies and for your future care.

“Are you prepared in case of an Emergency Room visit?” Monahan asks. “Have you talked with your family members and healthcare providers about your future care and what you want?”

Monahan knows that these topics can be difficult to broach, but she shared that the workshop is designed to help individuals prepare an emergency kit and find ways to start the needed conversations about future care.

“We will discuss interesting and relevant content, watch a short video, look over helpful resource materials and enjoy a light lunch together,” Monahan said. “Participants should leave feeling better prepared and capable to plan ahead and talk with their family, health care providers or other support systems.”

The program and lunch are free and open to the public; however, individuals are asked to pre-register by Sept. 23 to reserve their lunch. Preregistration is available online at http://bit.ly/si13771 or by calling 712-737-4230.
