Health Justice at the End of Life–Protecting and Expanding Your Rights and Choices

December 11, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

David C. Leven, JD, the Executive Director of Compassion & Choices of New York, will present a free talk on end-of-life issues. The rights to receive quality health care and to have one’s wishes respected at the end of life are often thwarted by laws, policies or practices in New York and other states. In his speech Leven will give New York residents information on their options for end-of-life care and what can be done to improve their chances that their wishes will be respected. He will also discuss how palliative care and aid in dying is expanding and what is happening in New York and in other states.
