Keynote Speaker

Dan Diaz
Advocate - End of Life Options
Alamo, CA
Dan is the husband of Brittany Maynard, the 29 year old woman who died in November 2014 from a brain tumor. The couple moved from California to Oregon, one of six states that has authorized medical aid-in-dying, in order for Brittany to have the option of a gentle dying process.  As a result of Brittany’s story, legislators have introduced bills to authorize medical aid-in-dying in over 25 states.  Dan advocates for expanding the availability of end of life options for terminally ill individuals.  His efforts were instrumental in securing the passage of the legislation in California and he also played a role in helping Colorado’s passage in 2016 and D.C. in 2017.  Dan’s efforts continue across the country; keeping the promise he made to Brittany.
