Medical technology advances almost daily. Soon, our country will have 80 million people over the age of 65. Often, modern medicine can deliver amazing results. But sometimes we use medicine and machines because we can, with no one asking whether we should. How can those in healthcare today best navigate this brave new world where the law, medicine, technology and demographics intersect? And what is the proper role of the law?

Bill Colby, General Counsel, Truman Medical Centers, is the lawyer who represented the family of Nancy Cruzan in their family's right-to-die case, the first such case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. He will talk through questions of ethical decision-making today, through the lens of a constitutional right that was created in Missouri.

Cost: $45 per person. Ticket includes lunch and a copy of Bill’s book, The Deaths of Nancy Cruzan
