Preparing for a Potential Hospital Stay | Alumni Lunch and Learn Webinar

Reprinted from University of Washington Foster Blog • April 15 2020 • Andrew Krueger

As you might expect, “business as usual” is evolving at the Foster School of Business. In response, the alumni engagement team joined the world of online events and launched Lunch & Learn w/Foster: A Webinar Series.

The series kicked off Friday, April 10 with a timely discussion on how to prepare for an unexpected hospital stay and the important documentation everyone should have ready, featuring Vanessa Brewster Laughlin (MBA 2007), founder of Banister Advisors, LLC™, Sarah Bowman, Partner at K&L Gates, and Robin Shapiro, founder of Health Perspectives Group.

The panel covered how advance care planning can make a critical difference in health outcomes, how to prepare for a potential trip to the hospital, and even how to approach the ‘talk’ with family members who would prefer to avoid that kind of conversation. A number of useful online resources were also mentioned, many of which can be found on the Banister Advisors website.
