NEWS and EVENTS

Learn about the Colorado End of Life Options Act

The national Conversation Project has a whole series of Starter Kits, and has just produced one titled “How to Choose a Healthcare Proxy.”  This is a terrific summary of the ins and outs of choosing (and being) a healthcare agent.

Volunteer Coach Meeting:  April 10th 1-3pm – please feel free to join!


The Conversation Project in Boulder co-founder, Dr. Jean Abbott co-authored an article about a study of medical students learning Advance Care Planning using The Starter Kit. The data shows that a value-based ACP educational session using The Conversation Starter Kit successfully engaged medical students in learning about ACP conversations, both professionally and personally.
