Advance Care Planning is a growing topic of interest for healthcare providers and the public at large.  Honoring Choices Minnesota (HCM) is a nonprofit public health initiative, formed under the auspices of the Twin Cities Medical Society, with the goal of making Advance Care Planning (ACP) the community’s collaborative standard of care, and to ensure that every person’s health care choices are clearly defined and honored.

July 17, 2014 is the fifth annual Sharing the Experience Conference.  This event brings together people working to design and grow ACP programs in healthcare settings, as well as others focusing on education and awareness for the community at large.  The day-long gathering offers keynote speakers, updates and announcements about HCM activities and ACP around the nation, special-interest break -out sessions, and plenty of time for networking and getting to know others in the field.  Details and Registration
