DeathWise brings you “Get It Done!” an online event being held on National Healthcare Decisions Day designed to motivate people to talk about, make decisions and document their end-of-life wishes. Our goal is to help as many people as possible complete an Advance Directive in one 24-hour period. Join us and give your loved ones the gift of planning!

Wise Conversations, made possible by a generous grant from the California HealthCare Foundation, provides trained coaches to meet with and guide small groups of people— families, friends and neighbors in living rooms and community centers—through the conversations about clarifying choices and the process of completing Advance Directives.
