Evening Ethics: “A Terror Way Beyond Falling: Suffering, Suicide, and Physician Aid-In-Dying”

This talk will center around the business of dying and the ethics involved. The description compares suicide to being trapped in a burning building. The fear of jumping out of the window is terrifying, but the terror becomes heightened by the pressure of the flames inside the building. In terms of suicide, jumping slowly becomes the only option. This talk will examine how doctors fit into this scenario and where the line is between help and hurt in the medical world. The lecture will take place in the Research Administration Building’s first floor conference room on Feb. 22, 5:30-7 p.m.
