Compassion & Choices Oregon's Annual Fundraising Luncheon
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
Please join us at Compassion & Choices Oregon’s Sixteenth Annual Fundraising Luncheon at Noon October 9 at the Multnomah Athletic Club.
Our keynote speaker is Deborah Whiting Jaques, CEO of the Oregon Hospice Association.
Sixteen years and continuing to grow and change, Compassion & Choices is the leader of the world's aid in dying movement to protect individual choice at the end of life for all Oregonians.
Since the initial passage of the Oregon Death with Dignity law in 1994, Compassion & Choices has worked closely with hundreds of physicians; pharmacies; clergy, and families who support the right of individuals to make considered and informed choices at the end of life.
The Oregon Hospice Association promotes high quality hospice and palliative care to Oregonians as they approach the end of life.
In addition to public information, referral and advocacy, the Oregon Hospice Association provides education and technical assistance to more than 50 licensed hospice provider programs who are serving dying Oregonians and their families and loved ones.
When & Where
Compassion & Choices of Oregon
Compassion & Choices of Oregon is a resource for Oregonians as they make end-of-life decisions and plan for a caring, gentle death according to their own values and beliefs.
We provide terminally ill, mentally competent adults with a network of professionals, who inform, educate and counsel them on the broad range of end-of-life options.
We complement the implementation of the Oregon Death with Dignity Law by ensuring qualified Oregonians with safe and responsible access to use the law.
Compassion’s volunteer team and staff include clergy, mental health professionals, attorneys, physicians, hospice nurses, palliative care specialists, and others experienced in helping terminally ill patients, their families and caregivers.
Through our experience we have developed an extensive database of community resources. We have access to professionals who provide terminally ill Oregonians the support they need to face the end of life with dignity.
