About Us

The Greater Dayton Advance Care Planning Initiative (GDACPI) consists of leadership from healthcare systems, clinical providers, higher education institutions, and legal professionals who are passionate about ensuring effective interactions around advance care planning with the people we serve. Guided by the professional expertise and personal commitment of our Leadership Council, we pledge to develop educational tools, community-led conversations, and trained facilitators to empower every person in the Greater Dayton Area to have conversations about advance care planning. These facilitated conversations will help people complete advance directives that are inclusive of personal values and beliefs and communicate documented values and beliefs with their family members, loved ones, and health care providers.
