"Isn't that too much? Talking with Loved Ones About Medical Overuse — CANCELLED

Feb 2nd - 4:00 pm

Sometimes we worry that a family member or friend is overdoing their health care: taking too much medicine, seeing too many doctors without enough coordination, or receiving tests or treatments that experts now think are of questionable value. This workshop will give you tools for raising concerns to family and friends about possible medical overuse without giving offense or hurting the relationship.
Learn how to bring up the topic and express your worry in a caring, diplomatic way.

Presenter: William Doherty, Ph.D., University of Minnesota

Co-sponsored by the Health Partners—Como Health Club and Baby Boomers for Balanced Health Care.
