April 16, 2009 is National Healthcare Decisions Day All Americans are encouraged to ensure that their future healthcare choices are known and protected. An advance directive is a legal document that tells healthcare providers who it is that you wish to make medical decisions for you and what treatments you would want or not want, if you are ever not able to tell us what you want for yourself. National Healthcare Decisions Day exists to remind all people, regardless of age or current health of the importance of making these decisions known. www.nationalhealthcaredecisionsday.org
