With multiple local groups, Compassion & Choices is active in Illinois, engaging in community outreach, grassroots organizing and stakeholder engagement.
Our Chicago team of activists hosted a Compassion & Choices booth at the national Aging in America Conference this year. They also held a National Healthcare Decisions Day event featuring Professor Lisa Anderson-Shaw, who served on the drafting committee for the new Illinois POLST (Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment).
