For gay couples in Tennessee, where marriage rights are denied, medical emergencies can bring about unwanted conflicts if plans aren't made in advance. Family members of the person in need of medical attention may be asked to make decisions, but what if you'd rather leave that up to a partner?

You can legally designate a specific person to act on your behalf for medical decisions, and the Rev. Ayla Heartsong will lead a free workshop on how to go about making that designation on Saturday, January 12th at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC). "Your Wishes, Your Choices: A Presentation About Advance Healthcare Planning" runs from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

MGLCC is located at 892 S. Cooper. For more information, call 901-326-8861 or email elders@mglcc.com.
