EMPOWERING CHOICES: NAVIGATING MAiD (In-Person at NSK Location)

Tuesday, April 16, 3:30 p.m.

New Jersey passed the Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) law in 2019, making New Jersey the eleventh state where medically assisted dying is legal.

We will explain what the requirements are to qualify for MAiD, discuss in detail the steps one must take to access MAiD, and further discuss why patients with terminal illnesses might choose MAiD as an option. We also explore how MAiD practitioners work with hospice, how MaiD varies from standard hospice care, how to find a participating doctor, and explain that there are varying practice models for MaiD.

TECH WORKSHOP: INFORMATION SECURITY CLASS (Zoom)

Wednesday, April 17, 10:30 a.m.–noon

Fee: $5

This ninety-minute class explains how to keep your personal information safe from data hackers, scam artists, and malware. We’ll discuss email “phishing” and “spoofing” that could trick you into providing your passwords, bogus virus warnings encouraging you to call a fake “help desk,” and phone calls from the IRS demanding payment using gift cards. You’ll learn best practices for creating effective passwords, using two-factor authentication, and managing credit card information when shopping online.

Instructors: CMAP tech volunteers Don Benjamin and Evelyn Sasmor
