Maine Death with Dignity Act

with Valerie Lovelace


There is still a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation about Maine's compassionate end-of-life care option. Many providers and patients in Maine are still not familiar with Maine's Death with Dignity Act. In effect since September 2019, the law permits physicians to practice medical aid-in-dying under specific circumstances.

Join this class to get fact-based informationm details you need to know about Maine's law, how to have the conversation with your physician, and how to qualify for the law or support your loved one who may be qualifying.  This is a live, online class using ZOOM.

Val was the grassroots leader and organizer from 2014 through passage of the law she co-authored in 2019. She is the founder and executive director of Maine Death with Dignity. Val believes people need good information to make good decisions. Val has been teaching adults in a variety of military and non-military organizations since 1981.
