Healthy Aging Martha's Vineyard (formerly the Healthy Aging Task Force) is a planning and advocacy coalition of over 70 leaders representing 37 nonprofit and municipal organizations serving Martha’s Vineyard elders and their families. The mission of Healthy Aging Martha's Vineyard (HAMV) is to create an aging-friendly Island meeting the needs of the rapidly growing 65+ population and those who care for them. Through a community-wide planning process, HAMV works to engage diverse stakeholders, foster collaborative programs, and fill service gaps.

As an Honoring Choices Partner, HAMV co-hosted a joint workshop which provided its coalition members with training and tools as Health Care Planning Ambassadors, and as facilitators to start end of life planning conversations using The Conversation Project's tools. Honoring Choices will continue to work with HAMV as it convenes major stakeholders to improve access to health care planning and ensure safe transitions for high quality equitable care throughout the Vineyard.
