Join us to learn more about medical aid in dying as an end of life option. Is it legal in your state? How do you access such a law? Is there a law proposed in your state? Learn by joining us!

It has been more than 20 years since Oregon's medical aid in dying law went into effect. Since then, eight more states and the District of Columbia have authorized this end-of-life care option. However, each law is slightly different. Join us for the first part of our series to learn about the differences in aid in dying laws across the country, what we have learned from over 50 combined years of data from all of the authorized states, and what you can do now, whether your state is authorized or not, to help implement medical aid in dying laws.
