A Full Range of Choices for Dying in Comfort and Dignity



There perhaps is no more private time than the final days of a terminal person’s life.  That holds true for their family and loved ones as well. As pain and suffering grows, decisions might become more difficult--or more clear--but state laws might prevent consideration of compassionate choices.

janet connWith Janet Conn, President of the Minnesota Chapter of Compassion & Choices

Compassionate Care is a national non-profit advocacy organization promoting improved care and expanded choice at end of life. Janet Conn will discuss the organization’s vision of “a society where people receive state-of-the-art care and a full range of choices for dying in comfort, dignity, and control.”

Westside Progressives is a non-partisan educational forum that encourages civil and thoughtful discussion about progressive issues.  The forum meets monthly usually on the third Tuesday.


Lasagna Buffet Dinner:  $10.
