CBC, The Current
Dr. Heyland was featured on CBC’s radio program, The Current, alongside guest host, Rosemary Barton. The segment focused around COVID-19, specifically how the pandemic is spurring more people to discuss their end-of-life plans with their loved ones. Dr.Heyland highlighted the difference between planning for end-of-life and planning for serious illness, explaining how COVID-19 is an example of a serious illness. The message around why it’s so important for people to have a plan in these times is one we hope many are hearing loud and clear. The time to have the conversation with your loved ones and make a plan, is now!
