Journalist Laurie Loisel will read from her book On Their Own Terms How One Woman’s Choice to Die Helped me Understand my Father’s Suicide.

Dr. Jeffrey Zesiger, hospice/ palliative care specialist, and Loisel will lead a discussion on navigating end-of-life decisions as individuals, family members and community members. Among the topics considered: how can we expand our views of choices available to people as they age? Is VSED, voluntarily stopping eating and drinking, suicide? Is there a difference between physician assisted dying and physician assisted suicide? What other choices are there? How can families engage in these difficult discussions?

This event is co-sponsored by Northampton Neighbors. Free and open to the public.
