State of Change

Andrew Dreyfus

What would it take for everyone in Massachusetts to get care that honors their values, preferences and goals—throughout their entire life? This question animates healthcare visionary Andrew Dreyfus whose personal experience of death gone well led him to become a leading advocate for fundamentally changing the way we care for people—and their families —facing serious illnesses. Deeply committed and enduringly optimistic about our shared responsibility to improve not just healthcare but health, Andrew shares learnings and insights into ways to create and sustain social change.
