Dr. Ubaka Ogbogu, Associate Professor, cross-appointed to the Faculties of Law and Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Alberta; Katz Research Fellow in Health Law and Science Policy; and Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Fellow, 2020 – 2023.
Canadian medical assistance in dying (MAID) laws were recently updated. However, they remain controversial in so many ways. Who qualifies? Who does not and why? Can health care providers object to any involvement in MAID? What safeguards to prevent abuse are in place? Professor Ogbogu will answer these questions and more from the perspective of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
This event is free and open to the public. It is part of our Downtown Charter Series and will be hosted online.
