National Healthcare Decisions Day teams up with The Conversation Project

The Conversation Project, founded in 2012, works to ensure that everyone’s end-of-life care wishes are both expressed and respected, and organizers of the widely recognized, National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) held every April 16, which encourages education and awareness on advance care planning through grassroots community events are joining forces to lead NHDD’s 10th anniversary events in 2017.

With the full power of The Conversation Project behind it, NHDD aims to expand its reach and boost the number of providers, hospitals, organizations, communities, and institutions that are currently involved. To date, over 110 national and 1,600 state/local organizations  have pledged their support and/or contributed to NHDD activities. Approximately 3 million members of the general public have participated in NHDD events or received advance directive information as a result of NHDD activities.
