Existential Medicine: Psilocybin, Palliative Care, and Policy

January 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This presentation will review the history of psilocybin and related agents in both medicine and law in the United States, and explore avenues for advocacy to increase psilocybin access for those suffering conditions that could be mitigated or improved through therapeutic use, focusing on psilocybin’s potential use as a palliative intervention.

Kathryn Tucker, JD is the Executive Director of the End of Life Liberty Project, an advocacy organization dedicated to protecting and expanding the rights of the terminally ill, which she founded during her tenure as Executive Director of the Disability Rights Legal Center, a leading disability rights advocacy organization. Previously, Kathryn served for two decades as Director of Advocacy and Legal Affairs for Compassion & Choices, engaging multidimensional advocacy to improve care and expand choice at the end of life. Kathryn has held faculty appointments at Loyola Law School (Los Angeles), University of Washington, Seattle University, and Lewis and Clark School of Law, teaching in the areas of law, medicine, and ethics pertinent to the end of life.

Suggested donation: $15. Proceeds support the Oregon Psilocybin Society and the PSI 2020 campaign. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A with PSI 2020 Chief Petitioners Tom & Sheri Eckert. Please RSVP on Facebook (not required for admission, but very helpful).
