Nothing but fun in the sun, great food, and family time at this years event.
Everyone came out to join the CONVERSATION
Oakland’s very own diverse crowd came out to join the conversation.
Folks from a few weeks old to over 80…
The children were at the center and keeping busy with play while adults played games and consulted with healthcare professionals about quality of life issues and learned about treatment/care/financial options. It was really a nice community-building event. Thanks to all who attended and whether you attended or not…hope to see you next year!
The sentiment is all that we hoped for in creating community space in which to talk about our lives, our health, our wishes. Here are the numbers:
We had 158 people sign in with 66 people completing the evaluation forms. In addition, we had 25 people as volunteers and or vendors attend. There were 4 advance directives completed with our notary and 1 completed with two witnesses. During registration we asked everyone if they had an advance directive. Participants got raffle tickets if they completed the NHDD Event evaluation form. We will have the results of that data collection next month.
Thank you for joining us!!
