#BeforeIDieUCLA

Eventsflyer The #BeforeIDieUCLA is an extended observation of National Healthcare Decisions Day. It’s a campaign to showcase whole person care – healthcare for people of all ages and all stages of life. It’s never too early for advance care planning, and to discuss your values, priorities and preferences for treatment should serious illness or injury strike.
