National Healthcare Decisions Day Set for April 19th

South Hill –VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital along with other national, state and community organizations, are leading a massive effort to highlight the importance of advance health care decision-making—an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of Wednesday, April 19, 2017 as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD).

As a participating organization, VCU Health CMH is providing information and tools for the public to talk about their wishes with family, friends and health care providers, and execute written advance directives (health care power of attorney and living will) in accordance with Virginia state laws. 

Specifically, on April 19, from 9:00AM to 2:00PM, VCU Health CMH is welcoming the public throughout the day at the hospital’s main lobby, with free information about advance care planning and advance directive forms.  Come by and learn how you can protect your health care choices and wishes in the event that you are unable to speak for yourself.  For more information, contact Tammy House at (434) 447-3151 ext. 3730 or visit www.nationalhealthcaredecisionsday.org.
