Did you know that at this very second you're participating in social media? Yes, right now! Do you feel silly? Your answer could be 'yes' but more than likely, it's probably 'no' because you read blogs all of the time and turn to them as a trusted source of information, right?
'Never doubt a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world because its the only thing that ever has.' Those words from the mouth of renowned cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead have never rung as true as they did today, April 16 on the Fourth Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day.
National Healthcare Decisions Day 2011 has proven a BIG success. Such an impactful national awareness initiative as this one would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of many 'committed citizens.' So we, the NHDD executive committee and team, would like to use this opportunity to extend our thanks to all who had a part in making it possible.
Tonight the hospice and palliative care online community will be dedicating their weekly #hpm Tweetchat to discussing advance care planning with the #HaveTheTalk hashtag as a way to support the NHDD initiative.
Did you see something about advance directives in the news or in a medical or legal journal? Maybe you found a great website about medical decision making we should know about. There are several ways you can let us know about your discovery. We like when you post to the blog, Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook because then it shows the power of community, and encourages other people to share.

On behalf of the National Healthcare Decisions Day leaders, we would like to welcome you to the new website. The goal for 2011 is to leverage the strengths of the social web to help promote NHDD. Since 2008 NHDD has been a force in grassroots action with events taking place across the United States in hospitals, nursing homes, churches, synagogues and businesses.
