Today, nine states and the District of Columbia have authorized medical aid in dying. Two decades of data demonstrates that while the laws safeguard patient autonomy and protect terminally ill individuals, many of these safeguards are roadblocks that make it impossible for eligible people to access this compassionate end-of-life care option. Join us to hear first-hand from someone who has accessed the law and to learn what we are doing and how you can help to educate the community, healthcare professionals, health systems and hospices to ensure terminally ill adults have access to this compassion end-of-life option.
