Matt Whitaker, Oregon Director for Compassion & Choices, expresses what we’ve heard from all of our sponsors: “The more open and honest conversations we all have about our end-of-life wishes, the better. Compassion & Choices is excited to be a part of this event which celebrates the importance of these conversations with so many diverse groups at the table.”
