How to Die in Oregon: Film screening & Grand Rounds
Start Date: 3/30/2017Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 3/30/2017End Time: 6:00 PM
Event Description:
In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. Since 1994, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. In How to Die in Oregon, filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether – and when – to end their lives by lethal overdose. Richardson examines both sides of this complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die with dignity.
Followed by Discussion Panel for NY’s Medical Aid in Dying Act. Sponsored by CompassionAndChoices.org, under the auspices of the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care & Bioethics
