Advance Care Planning helped our family and can help yours too

A personal message from Mark R. Thompson

Dear CPB Friend:

As an attorney, I was initially impressed with the Center’s work around end-of-life care. My mother passed away in 2018 and my father this year, so I saw the benefit first-hand of having their decisions regarding end-of-life care preserved and followed.

In times like these, as a member of the Center’s Board of Directors, it’s hard to choose which Center activity excites me most. Its ongoing legacy work in end-of-life care and invaluable consulting services for hospital ethics committees are crucially important activities that I would like to see expand geographically over time.

On the other hand, knowledge gained from our new cutting-edge initiatives in artificial intelligence and democratic deliberation has unprecedented potential to further equity and justice in health and healthcare.

To succeed in these initiatives, the Center needs more resources

to scale up and reinforce the efforts of its small but dedicated staff.

The Center is the one bioethics organization in the U.S. that provides practical action in the real world that directly brings ethics to bear in care delivery decisions. The Center’s work deserves to be sustained and amplified, and your support is vital to that end.

As you plan your charitable giving for 2022,

please include a generous gift to the Center for Practical Bioethics.

Sincerely,

Mark R. Thompson, JD
