April is Healthcare Decisions Month!

Governor Cooper has officially proclaimed April 2024 as Healthcare Decisions Month. Planning for your future care is essential regardless of your current age or the present state of your health. Take time this month to talk with your loved ones about what your wishes are should you not be able to speak for yourself and who should be the person to communicate those decisions with healthcare providers.

This video is a great resource to help understand the importance of advance care planning, best practices for tough conversations, and how to overcome barriers related you may encounter.
