Ashley Evdokimo discusses the importance of Advance Directives and stresses the point of having the conversation earlier rather than later. We have been conditioned to see the end of life as something that isn’t a part of life – and that needs to change. An Advance Directive is a great way to START the conversation about end of life care, and Ashley encourages each and every one of you to STOP waiting to have these conversations.
Ashley Evdokimo is an MBA student at UNR working for St. Mary’s Hospice. She strives to inspire the people around her everyday and has certainly inspired us with her talk on death and dying, Advance Directives and honoring choices. Ashley encourages each and every one of us to have the courage to ask one another – do you know how you want to die?
