The Mesa County Commissioners this morning proclaimed April 16, 2015, National Healthcare Decision Day.

The Commissioners wrote: "Advance care planning is the act of making decisions about the medical care you want to receive if you become unable to speak for yourself ... heightening awareness in the 18-30-year-old age group around the need for young people to create advance medical directives is critical. It is estimated that only about 20 percent of people in Colorado have executed an advance directive."
