Why You Need a Health Care Proxy


Dana-Farber social worker Bruce MacDonald, MSW, LICSW, explains why everyone should name a health care proxy -- someone who can speak for you in the event of a medical emergency.

A health care proxy is a person you trust who can speak for you if you cannot make medical decisions on your own. Dana-Farber believes that everyone should have a health care proxy – not just those who may be dealing with an illness or injury. Learn more about establishing a health care proxy.
