Tomorrow, The Med Students for Life Tour will be at Mayo Medical School in Rochester, MN. Mayo CMA & CMDA will present Dr. Bill Toffler @12:00PM CST at 2-35 Kendall Hench Hall Guggenheim Building 3rd Ave SW Rochester, MN 55905. Dr Toffler will be speaking about Physician Assisted Suicide from the doctor-patient relationship perspective. .
Dr. Toffler has been with the Department of Family Medicine at Oregon Health Science University since 1985 and serves as the Director of Predoctoral Education. He is the co-founder and National Director of Physicians for Compassionate Care Education Foundation (PCCEF), a non-profit organization that promotes compassionate care for severely-ill patients without sanctioning or assisting their suicide. PCCEF physicians affirm an ethic based on the principle that all human life is inherently of value and that the physician’s roles are to heal illness, alleviate suffering, and provide comfort for the sick and dying. He is committed to defending the long-standing, medical prohibition against doing harm and has worked actively to support human life from conception to natural death. He is frequently invited to speak about these and other medical ethical issues at both regional and national conferences. Dr. Toffler has been a member of Focus on the Family Physicians Council for the past six years.
Also, please pray that Dr. Toffler will reach the hearts and minds of the many medical students he will meet. If he can change just one heart tens of thousands of lives will be saved!
So far in the tour Dr. Toffler has spoken at UC Davis, Dartmouth and University of Minnesota. Mayo will mark his 4th appearance out of five on our Fall Med Tour. If you are in the Rochester area, please join us for tomorrow’s lecture.
