National Healthcare Decisions Day aims to help people across the U.S. understand the value of advance healthcare planning.
For 2017, NHDD will be a week long event, from April 16 to 22.
National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. NHDD is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
The theme for 2017 is "It Always Seems Too Early, Until It’s Too Late."
