Executive Director Emeritus and Senior Consultant David Leven will present “Aid in Dying in New York: Your Right to Choose” at the Field Library located a 4 Nelson Avenue in Peekskill. This speech focuses on aid in dying, the process by which a mentally competent, terminally ill adult patient obtains a prescription of medicines which the patient may ingest to end suffering and achieve a peaceful death. Topics covered include current attempts to legalize aid in dying in New York through legislation or litigation; and the experiences of other states in which aid in dying is already legal.
