A Message from J. Donald Schumacher

As many people know, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) has been working actively to clarify misinformation among national and regional media regarding health care reform legislation. An important part of our outreach has been to correctly explain the advance care planning provision and stress the value of this benefit for all Americans.
In the article “End-of-life care planning urged” by Helen Altonn in today’s Star Bulletin (4/16/09) Kokua Mau and its website was prominently featured. In case you cite the article please make sure to give out the Kokua Mau phone number (808) 585-9977, not the number listed in the article (since this is a private home phone number).
