Imagining New York After Medical Aid in Dying Legalization

October 27, 2022, 6:00pm-7:30pm Eastern
Via Zoom
Early bird fee (until 9/30): $25
Medical aid in dying (MAID) is expected to become legal in New York within the next few years. Once this becomes legal, terminally ill patients who have decision-making capacity can request for a doctor to prescribe a life-ending medication which the patient must self-administer, if they choose to do so, to have a peaceful death. As we look toward our future, it is time to imagine and prepare for a New York after MAID legalization.

Join us as we hear from expert panelists in California —including Lonny Shavelson, MD, a prominent end of life physician; Lori Goldwyn an end of life doula; and Bradley Berman, a filmmaker who documented his close friend's journey with cancer who utilized MAID — to explore what we can expect, what we should do to prepare, and what we can hope for once MAID becomes legal in New York.
