If you can’t speak for yourself, who will make your medical decisions?

    It’s not unreasonable to wait until a patient is 65 to start discussing advance care planning, but we should ALL be making our wishes clear to our families, including you, Dr. Berlin. Young people sometimes have medical emergencies and can’t speak for themselves too. Once you begin working and accumulate possessions you should have a will. Register as an organ donor and tell your family if that’s what you want. Death is inevitable: let’s face facts while we also take care to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Don’t wait til you are 65. Or 45. Or even 25.
