Ep5: Spit da Knowledge- End of Life Planning
Hey yawl! On Coloring Health Policy, we will talk about a range of topics, but sometimes I want to "spit" knowledge about health care policy ideas that a lot of people of color do not really know about or think about until it happens. My first episode on this is about end of life planning. Not last will in testament but living will information, having conversations about end of life care before end of life happens. Stay tuned!
