How to Advocate for Medical Aid in Dying in Arizona

Monday October 17, 6:00 PM Arizona time

Presented by Mary Ganapol
Ganapol Webinar
After briefly exploring the rich history of the right-to-die movement in Arizona, we will take a detailed look at what the medical aid in dying (MAID) law is all about: the qualifications and the safeguards. We’ll compare the “Oregon Model” implemented in the 1990s to the modernization of the law in the 21st century. We’ll debunk the misinformation and confirm the facts surrounding this topic which is often misunderstood by voters and lawmakers alike. Want to try tabling to spread the word, or simply want to feel comfortable talking to friends and family about MAID? By the end of the class, you will feel confident advocating for a MAID law in Arizona.
