Two interactive sessions (10:00-11:30 AM and 3:00-4:30 PM) will be presented by Judy Neall Epstein, ND and Rabbi Suzanne Singer, volunteers from End of Life Choices California. Discussion will include California’s End of Life Option Act which allows the legal use of medical aid in dying for terminal patients. We will also explore the Jewish perspective and the official position of the three major denominations on this issue.

End of Life Choices California’s mission is to provide Californians the information and support to successfully navigate their legal end-of-life options. Relevant topics include Advance Care Planning; the California End of Life Option Act (EOLA); eligibility requirements for Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD); and Voluntary Stopping Eating and Drinking (VSED)–a legal option in all 50 states. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable about both hospice and palliative care and can explain the differences between the two services.
