Photo Montage of diverse set of people in many rolesThank you to the Honoring Choices Partners and Regional Champions for hosting Health Care Planning Ambassador Workshops in 6 regions of the state. The Ambassador Workshops enhance the knowledge and skills of care providers, community professionals, nursing and medical students, and faith based and lay leaders to engage adults in care planning discussions and complete a Health Care Proxy and Personal Directive (Living Will). Our Ambassadors are helping connect adults to vital care in their communist and collecting important consumer feedback on the barriers to accessing quality care.
