National Healthcare Decisions Day & SC Healthcare Decisions Day is April 16

Most Americans do not have an advance directive. Learn more.

Despite recent gains in public awareness of the need for advance healthcare planning, studies indicate that most Americans do not have an advance directive, such as a Healthcare Power of Attorney or Living Will. The purpose of National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) and South Carolina Healthcare Decisions Day (SCHDD) is to inspire, educate & empower the public & providers about the importance of advance healthcare planning. The goal is to encourage patients/the public to express their wishes regarding healthcare advance directives,  and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
