Ways to Participate

Attend an ACP Event

Find an event in your area to learn more about health care decisions and advance directives. In addition to informative presentations, many events offer trained facilitators to assist you with completing your advance directive documents and free notary services to notarize them immediately. Sometimes, the ECU Health team is onsite to scan your documents to your ECU Health medical record. Find an event near you.
