REIMAGINE: Demystifying Medical Aid in Dying: Family Voices. Part 1 of 2
Recorded June 15, 2020
Join a spiritual leader, an expert on legislative advocacy and special guest Dan Diaz for a personal perspective on the use of medical aid in dying. Dan and his late wife, Brittany Maynard, had to move from California to Oregon in 2014, so she could utilize Oregon’s medical aid-in-dying law to peacefully end her suffering from terminal brain cancer. At the time, California did not authorize the practice, but because of her story and Dan’s advocacy, California adopted a medical aid in dying law the year after Brittany passed.
Panelists provide first-hand accounts of their intimate involvement in death involving medical aid in dying, and will share the peace the option affords. We hope that this webinar will offer a glimpse into what having a medical aid in dying law means and how the lasting impression of a loved one’s final days can be a treasured memory.
