COVID has shown us how vital conversations about end-of-life care wishes can be. We'll explore barriers to and innovative solutions for creating advance care plans, with a focus on Black communities.

The devastation wreaked on families by the fast-moving COVID-19 has shown us how vital conversations about patients’ end-of-life care wishes can be before the onset of serious illness. Unfortunately, only 27% of Americans have formally documented their wishes.

Led by The New York Academy of Medicine's Center for Healthy Aging, this event will explore barriers to creating advance care plans (ACPs), with a focus on African American communities, and innovative solutions to simplify the ACP process.

A zoom link will be provided in your confirmation email. Please direct any questions or technical issues to info@nyam.org.
