Complete an Advance Directive at the Health Fair
In addition to getting free medical screenings at the Community Health
Fair, attendees can also cross another item off their list: completing
an advance health care directive. Printed copies will be available at
the Health Fair, and staff members will be on hand to assist with any
questions. The Health Fair takes place Saturday, May 4, 9 am–noon,
at the Teton County/Jackson Rec Center at 155 E. Gill Avenue.
An advance directive is a legal document in which a person specifies what
actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to
make decisions for themselves because of illness or injury. An advance
directive become part of your health care record.
An advance directive includes power of attorney for health care, giving
specific instructions about any aspect of your health care, donate your
bodily organs and tissues following your death, and designating a supervising
health care provider to have primary responsibility for your health care.
