It’s National Healthcare Decisions Day

Where is your Advance Directive?
How we want to be treated at the end of our lives is a somber — but essential — subject. Surveys show people want control at the end, but too often, they admit, they haven’t made preparations.

To help inform your thinking, we at inewsource urge you to take a look a project called An Impossible Choice. It won five national awards last year and the mini-documentary we produced for PBS Newshour was nominated for a national Emmy. Most importantly, this body of work may help you navigate the tough territory of deciding what you want for yourself and encouraging loved ones to talk about what they want for themselves.

inewsource was founded six years ago as a tax-deductible nonprofit to do in-depth journalism, the kind that illuminates new worlds, sometimes in harsh light. We intend always to enrich your life and to empower you with information you can trust.

Today is an important day. Let us help guide you through it.
