The American Clinicians Academy on Medical Aid in Dying wishes to thank the gracious donors who supported the National Clinicians Conference on Medical Aid in Dying. Those conference donations, plus registration fees, exceeded the cost of the conference. The remaining funds — as well as new donations for the Academy — now provide the startup costs of the Academy. We continue to appreciate all donations to support the first year and expanding efforts of the American Clinicians Academy on Medical Aid in Dying. Thank you in advance for your tax-deductible donations, at this link.
