The Final Exit Network supports individuals who elect to manage their own end-of-life experience, including selecting the time and method of their own “self-deliverance.” This program will review the principles and methods of the Final Exit Network, and will provide ample opportunity for questions, answers and discussion. Further information (handouts) on the Final Exit Network will be available.
