The 8th Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) will be held on Thursday, April 16.

This nationwide event seeks to inspire, educate, and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance health care planning.

The NHDD initiative is a collaborative effort of national, state, and community organizations that are committed to ensuring that all Americans have the information and opportunity they need to communicate and document their healthcare decisions. AACOM is a national participant in the NHDD initiative.

The day will highlight 50 independent, but coordinated, state events supported by national media and a public education campaign. In all respects, the event is intended to be inclusive and should bring a variety of players from the larger health care community together to work on a common project, to the benefit of patients, families, and providers. AACOM supports the initiative to highlight and raise awareness about the importance of advance health care decision-making—on NHDD and throughout the year.
