Writing Your Last Chapter: Medical Aid in Dying with Roger Kligler, MD and Melissa Stacy

Compassionate? Controversial? An essential human right? Join Dr. Roger Kligler and Melissa Stacy for a discussion about medical aid in dying for mentally competent, terminally ill adult patients. Should Massachusetts join ten other states and the District of Columbia by passing a bill that would authorize doctors to provide this assistance to their patients in carefully defined circumstances?

Dr. Kligler is a retired primary care physician, a patient with a terminal illness, and a plaintiff in a suit against the Commonwealth for access to medical aid in dying. Melissa Stacy is the Regional Advocacy Manager-Northeast for Compassion and Choices.

This virtual program is presented in partnership with the Boston Public Library, as part of Beacon Hill Village’s Living Well Ending Well series. Closed captioning is available.
