Let’s Talk About ACP

The African-American Spiritual and Ethical Guide to End-of-Life Care – Special 2020 Advance Care Planning Edition by Gloria Thomas Anderson, LMSW

“Let’s Talk About ACP” Program

Guide & interactive workshop series on end-of-life care planning

An intervention targeting African-Americans. These interactive workshops will provide individuals, families and caregivers with a conversational “framework” that educates and encourages end-of-life dialogue to take place with loved ones, hopefully, before a crisis occurs.

What would your wishes be if you were not able to speak for yourself due to a life threatening illness or accident?

What People Are Saying


“As the outpatient oncology chaplain on an interdisciplinary care team, I have found Ms. Anderson’s booklet very helpful in opening up difficult conversations in a non-threatening and engaging way. I have used the book with many patients and all have said it was “very helpful” and were grateful for help in learning how to talk about “hard things” at end-of-life”.

– Linda G. Fischer, Chaplain, Outpatient Oncology

I just read through The African American Spiritual and Ethical Guide to End of Life Care and loved it! Your guide provides such rich information and is like no other resource I have seen.

– L. B., GPCNP

Having used this booklet now for about 2 years, I have found that it fills a previously unmet need for Medicare mandated and culturally relevant materials to teach medical patients about their choices for end of life planning.

– Marianne Wilson, MSW, LCSW, Renal Social Worker

“Thus far, we have used it largely as a resource for staff who are serving an African-American family and/or who are just interested in learning more about the end of life perspective of this community. We have been grateful to have it as a resource”.

– Nancy Sherman, LICSW, Director of Bereavement Services

Heart Tones’ mission is to educate, equip and empower individuals, families and caregivers with resources and knowledge to help make informed decisions in healthcare and end-of-life planning through culturally responsive approaches.
