The California State University Institute for Palliative Care at Fresno State will present a conversation on the California End-of-Life Option Act and the Medical Aid in Dying Law, facilitated by Matt Whitaker, at 9:15 a.m., Friday, Sept. 15, at the University Student Union (rooms 312 and 314). Information on the eligibility of end-of-life choices and continuum of care options will be discussed, followed by a question and answer session. Currently, the Medical-Aid-in-Dying Law allows a mentally capable, terminally ill California adult, with six months or less to live, the option to request aid-in-dying medication from their doctor for self-administration for a peaceful death. Whitaker is the multi-state implementation manager of Compassion and Choices, a nonprofit organization committed to improving care and expanding options for the end of life. The event is free and open to the public. INFO: For parking information and to RSVP, contact Helen Miltiades at firstname.lastname@example.org or 559.278.7253.
