Seven years after the death of Terri Schiavo, end-of-life care issues remain debated, most recently in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court decision affirming the Affordable Care Act, says the Emerson Forum, a community education service of The Emerson Center of Tampa Bay. 

This conference -- open to both professionals and the general public -- presents four nationally-known speakers on the subject: Jay Wolfson, D.P.H., J.D., guardian ad litem for Terri Schiavo, assistant vice president and professor at the University of South Florida and a professor at the Stetson College of Law; Janice M. Van Dyck, award-winning author of the novel Finding FrancesHoward Tuch, M.D., director of Palliative Care Services at Tampa General Hospital and a member of USF Health; and James Orlowski, M.D., chief of pediatrics, chairman of ethics and vice chief of staff at Florida Hospital/Tampa.

The first 100 ticket-purchasers receive a copy of Finding Frances.

Tickets are available online only.
