FREE WORKSHOP: UNDERSTANDING CA'S MEDICAL AID IN DYING LAW & PLANNING AHEAD

Hosted By Compassion & Choices
@ SF Public Library, 5:30-7:30PM

California's End of Life Option Act was signed into law and became  effective on June 9, 2016.

When signing, Governor Brown stated, "I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain. I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn't deny that right to others." This educational event provides a basic overview and understanding of the law.
