NHDD Makes Headlines in the Midwest

That’s right; National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) participating organizations must be working over time to get the word out because their efforts are paying off tremendously.

For today’s NHDD and Advance Care Planning News Round Up, we found an NHDD mention in the blogosphere...

In a recent post titled ‘Gearing Up for National Healthcare Decisions Day,’ Angela Morrow, RN—and author of About Palliative Care Blog—exalts the importance of advance care planning, and tells a little bit about her personal advance directive experiences.

Plus, as we scanned our news aggregators, we stumbled across not one, not two, but five news stories about NHDD in publications all over the Midwestern United States. So we've devoted this round up of NHDD mentions to that particular region...

In the Northwestern most part of the Midwest…

“Experts encourage sharing health care wishes,” a SCTimes.com story, highlights the efforts of The Central Minnesota Council on Aging (CMCA) to promote awareness of the need for advance care planning during NHDD 2011.

In the ‘mid-Midwest’…

The Northwest Herald reported that there is a “National Healthcare Decisions Day event planned at MCC.” According to the article, McHenry County, the Chicago End-of-Life Care Coalition (CECC) Northwest Branch will sponsor a free screening of a film in support of the NHDD initiative.
