A Compassionate End-of-Life Care Option: Medical Aid in Dying 

Today, nine states and the District of Columbia have authorized medical aid in dying. However, each law is slightly different. Join us as we learn about what exactly is medical aid in dying and what we have learned from states where this compassionate end of life option is legal.  Representative Paul Baumbach will also discuss his proposed legislation for Delaware the Ron Silveiro/Heather Block End of Life Options Act.
