So today was a very important

So today was a very important day. My volunteer work with Compassion and Choices, the organization that has gotten all the death with dignity laws passed in the country and it's working to get it passed in DE, has gone to the next level. I gave a lecture on Medical Aid in Dying at an oncology conference at University of Pennsylvania Hospital today. I've been working very hard preparing for my talk, I took three days off work to hone my lecture and it couldn't have gone better. The audience was amazing and asked really great, engaging questions. The representative from compassion and choices took the train from Connecticut all the way to Philly just to support me in the audience. They've asked me to be the DE director of compassion and choices and I couldn't be more honored. I feel very lucky to be able to advocate for my patients and I hope that one day I can say I had a small part in passing this law in DE so patients can choose to end their suffering at the end of their lives.#deathwithdignity #cancersurvivor #medicalaidindying #volunteer #cancer #philly #hup #upenn #firststate #delaware #pac #physicianassistant #happypaweek

This is the cover story in the

This is the cover story in the today's New York Times. Besides the fact that it is personally significant because my uncle's last selfless act was to give people a glimpse into the importance of Canada's new physician assisted dying law and how it works, but with all the talk of faltering newspapers, the NYT perfectly utilized all traditional and new technologies to tell this story. Online there were audio and video clips and photos, in print there are additional photos. It has made the social media rounds, as it should. I haven't read anything this good in awhile, and that statement is as objective as it can be considering my connection to the subject of the story. #journalism #nytimes #medicalaidindying

Today I started the next part

Today I started the next part of my journey in voicing my support of the #EndOfLifeOptionsAct! I volunteered for an organization called #compassionAndChoices at a resource fair for #seniors. Our table was there to answer questions and educate folks on their end of life options. Sometimes called #deathWithDignity #theRightToDie or #medicalAidInDying. This topic is important to me as I get older and because my Dad died of #ALS and did not have this option. Regardless of your religious beliefs it is now a LAW in the state of California and there are many doctors and hospitals who do not support it. Our goal is to make patients aware of their end of life options. #documenteachday #livewithPurpose #pursueYourpassions #RightToDieMovement #SparkTheConversation #elephantInTheRoom #death #talkAboutDeath #weAreAllGoingToDie Speak your mind and communicate w your loved ones what your wishes are. Life is short. Your time might come when you least expect it. Be prepared. #AdvancedDirective

2.8.17 / I started my new #volunteer gig today with this #endOfLifeOption group. #rightoDie #compassionAndChoices #endoflife The End of Life Option Act passed in California this past June but still so many Doctors and hospitals don't support it. Patients have this right and need to know how to ask for their options. I feel so strongly about this since my Dad died of ALS when I was young. #medicalAidInDying is your choice! #deathWithDignity #documenteachday
