AOA Partnerships

The AOA works in cooperation with the following agencies and organizations to offer a wide variety of unique health programs and services.​​​​​​​


 Featured Partner: National Healthcare Decisions Day


One of the most important decisions we can make during our lifetime is the kind of medical care and treatment we do and do not want when we are seriously ill and cannot speak for ourselves. It’s even more important to put our decisions—our advance directives—into writing. While more than 70% of Americans have thought about their advance directives, only 29% have a living will. Each year, April 16 marks National Healthcare Decisions Day and the AOA joins this effort to raise awareness for a difficult but very necessary issue.
