"We're launching the new web site in conjunction with several other major initiatives relevant to our new name," said David Goldberg, Director, Communication. "In addition to changing our name from the Hemlock Society to End-of-Life Choices, we have a new CEO, we've doubled the size of our board of directors and we've moved our offices. "It's a natural that our site should reflect our new focus, energy and professionalism."
Key landing pages within the site include "Learn About Us," "Act, Join, Donate," "Explore Our Community" and a new area, "Media & Education Center." Visitors can find an expert on specific areas of end-of-life care and issues as well as schedule a speaker for a community event. They can also join End-of-Life Choices, donate to the organization and sign up for regular updates of legislative activity.
"We continue to advocate for the freedom for all Americans to choose a dignified death," said Kimberly Spencer, web site manager. "With the significant increase in our functionality and the continued growth of our membership, we also want to emphasize the role we can play as an information and education resource."
Headquartered in Denver and founded
in 1980, End-of-Life Choices is the oldest and largest choice in dying

by memberships and donations. Choices actively supports advocacy for the
purpose of enacting laws so that all Americans can live with the freedom

Apollo landing sites. More than 18,000 film strips
of images were recorded from orbiting satellites
