Aid in Dying: An Important Possibility at the End of Life

End of Life Choices New York and the New York Society for Ethical Culture invite you to the inaugural Barbara Swartz End of Life Choices Lecture: “Aid in Dying: An Important Possibility at the End of Life.”


The speaker will be the renowned palliative care expert Dr. Timothy Quill. Dr. Quill is the Director of the Center for Palliative Care and Clinical Ethics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. After helping a patient die with life-ending medications, Dr. Quill was the lead physician plaintiff in a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case challenging the law prohibiting physician-assisted death. He is now a plaintiff in Myers v. Schneiderman, a case seeking to achieve aid in dying in New York.
