The California Health Care Foundation released new data about the care and treatment Californians want at the end of life or for a serious illness.

This comprehensive survey shows that 75% of Californians support the End of Life Option Act, the law authorizing medical aid in dying. The data holds consistent with previous polling done in the state. Read our press release on the report.
