Key Faith Leaders send "Letter to Healthcare Professionals"

June 3, 2019

Several key faith-based leaders sent a “Letter to Healthcare Professionals” to the Honolulu Star Advertiser on Sunday May 25th, after the Honolulu Star Advertiser printed an article reporting on the suicide of three people in Hawaii’s community.  The 34 faith leaders who signed the letter are reminding healthcare professionals that the best choice is compassion by providing good end of life care. This great end of life care includes promoting access to palliative care and hospice care. Local faith-leaders are taking a proactive response to the new law which took effect on January 1, 2019 by addressing people of faith.
