Episode 15: Why don’t more American adults do this?

In this November 2023 episode, host Tim Jordan explores this question with his two guests: Why don’t more American adults do this?  Do what? Advance Care Planning. Only about 1 in 3 American adults have done Advance Care Planning. Yet it is free! Why have so few done this?   

Special Guests, Debra Jackson, RN of VITAS Health Care and Kimberly Schmidt, RN of Promedica Health System help Tim answer this very perplexing and important question.
