TexMed Speaker Takes on Physician-Assisted Suicide Laws


“I think we’re better people than that.” That’s palliative care expert Ira Byock, MD’s, response to so-called “death with dignity” laws that would legalize physician-assisted suicide. The Los Angeles Times published an outstanding overview of Dr. Byock’s career and the battle for ethical end-of-life care. You can hear him in person in Austin. Dr. Byock is the Opening General Session speaker on May 1 at TexMed 2015 at the Austin Convention Center. Registration is still open
