Hispanic Heritage Month: Celebrating Our Voices

As we mark Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 through Oct. 15), we reflect on the importance of the physician-patient relationship in creating meaningful conversations about health care throughout our lives, including at the end of life

In this video, Dr. Carlos Hernandez-Torres, a Hospice & Palliative Medicine specialist in New York, and member of the Compassion & Choices Latino Leadership Council discusses the importance of planning and talking to your health care provider. The video is in Spanish, with English subtitles.

Compassion & Choices is committed to ensuring that the movement for end-of-life options includes all ethnicities, cultures, traditions and faiths that make up the United States.
