 National Healthcare Decisions Day
April 16, 2011 


It is said that “only two things in life are certain: death and taxes.” As the tax filing deadline approaches, the country celebrates National Healthcare Decisions Day to inspire, educate, and empower the public and health care providers about the importance of advance care planning. Such planning helps to ensure your wishes are followed should medical decisions need to be made, and you are unable to make them. It also prepares your family and friends for the difficult decisions they may confront.
