    Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
    • Humanities in Medicine Lecture
    Mara Buchbinder, PhD, UNC Center for Bioethics, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

    In this talk, Professor Buchbinder will present findings from the Vermont Study on Aid-in-Dying, which investigated the implementation of Vermont's "Patient Choice and Control at End of Life" Act, enacted in 2013. Drawing on two years of ethnographic research in Vermont, she will focus on the gaps between advocacy narratives and what assisted death looks like once it is put into practice.
