ORANGE COUNTY TO HOST PANEL DISCUSSION ON DEATH WITH DIGNITY

ORANGE COUNTY, NC (February 25, 2016)—The Orange County Department on Aging and UNC’s Partnerships in Aging Program, invite the public to attend a discussion panel entitled, “Death with Dignity: What is it and Where Should North Carolina be Headed?”

The discussion will take place from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 17, at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.

Project EngAGE, a program of the Orange County Department on Aging, proudly presents a thoughtful discussion around what it means to “die with dignity,” and the possibility of legalizing “Physician Assisted Suicide” or “Death with Dignity” laws in North Carolina.

The free event will kick off with a keynote address by Barbara Mancini, of Compassion & Choices. She was also featured on “60 Minutes.” Panelists representing many perspectives will include members of the North Carolina Legislature, and religious, legal, medical, and ethics scholars and leaders. Audience discussion will follow the panel’s remarks.
