End Of Life Options In CA and Beyond

For the full hour, Kim Callinan – President and CEO of Compassion & Choices, and Matt Whitaker – National Director of Integrated Programs at Compassion & Choices talk about how proactive step-taking can benefit any of us, all of us, to make the end of life, our own. Of particular concern is mapping out preferences amidst dementia. We also hear about the progress being made on SB 380 that would renew and amend the End of Life Options Act in the state of CA during the current legislative session.
