Event organizer: Robert Long
Event Date & Time: September 12, 2019 5:00 pm until September 12, 2019 6:30 pm

AUGUSTA — The Maine CDC is hosting a public stakeholder meeting 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, Augusta Civic Center, Cumberland Room, 76 Community Drive. It is seeking input for its new rule required by An Act to Enact the Maine Death with Dignity Act (See 129th Legislature’s Public Law, ch. 271 – LD 1313). 

 Specifically, Maine CDC would like input on the following two questions: 

1.       What data elements would you recommend that the Maine CDC collect, in addition to the items outlined in the Maine Death with Dignity Act and Governor Mills’ Executive Order Number 9? 

2.       Where should the reporting forms associated with this new law be accessed? Should the forms be available on a public site or at a portal reserved for practitioners? 

 All interested individuals are invited to attend.  Individuals who are unable to attend this public meeting may submit written comments to Bridget Bagley at bridget.bagley@maine.gov.  All written comments must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13.
