Isn't it time to write that letter to your loved one?

For National Healthcare Decisions Day this year, we are encouraging everyone to write by snail mail or email to their near and dear. A letter is, after all, a great way to share our wishes for end-of-life care. If you’re willing to have us share yours, please send it our way (conversationproject@ihi.org). Learn more about our letter-writing campaign!
