Dr. Mark Sandock and Steve Chupp appeared on WSBT-TV's Home Town Living program on Tuesday, April 12 to talk about Honoring Choices® Indiana – North Central, National Healthcare Decisions Day and the importance of Advance Directives.

How to Become a Facilitator

Advance care planning (ACP) conversations are difficult for most people to initiate. The topic can be uncomfortable and awkward, often due to the fear of discussing death.

National Healthcare Decisions Day

Annually, April 16 is designated as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD). The purpose of this day is “to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning.”
