The place to start the conversation about wishes for end-of-life care is at the kitchen table, not the ICU. Nathan Kottkamp visits Bellingham for National Healthcare Decisions Day because he's impressed with our community's progress on this topic. Nathan will share why he founded NHDD...and the impact it has had on our acceptance of mortality.

Nathan A. Kottkamp, founder & chair National Healthcare Decisions Day, is a partner of McGuireWoods LLP.  He is a bioethicist, who concentrates in healthcare law, including patient rights, clinical ethics, HIPAA, and advance directives, among other healthcare legal matters. He has dedicated his career to helping clients navigate the complex healthcare legal environment and continues to lead the pro bono NHDD initiative, which he views as a public health issue. He lives in Richmond, VA.
