4/16/18 – National Healthcare Decisions Day

Grand Rapids, MI – Making Choices Michigan, along with other national, state and community organizations, are leading a massive effort to highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making – an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day.

Groups are providing information and tools for the public to talk about their wishes with family, friends and healthcare providers, and execute written advance directives to ensure that their healthcare choices are honored, should there be in a situation where they can no longer speak for themselves.

On Tuesday, April 17, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, Making Choices Michigan will be hosting a free event at Grand Valley State University’s Pew Campus, at the Charles W. Loosemore Auditorium on Fulton Street in Grand Rapids.  There will be a presentation and panel discussion where organizations will address living well, managing chronic illnesses, and various facets of healthcare will be present to provide information to interested individuals.   Space is limited and reservations are requested by going to :  makingchoicesmichigan.org, or calling 616-421-4840.
