Should people who are suffering from terminal illnesses be allowed to choose death with dignity? Should families of loved ones who are suffering from terminal conditions be allowed to “pull the plug”—or even administer lethal doses of medication?
Retired attorney Alan A. Pfeffer, Esq., joins us to talk about this sensitive and controversial topic. Unless you are facing a terminal illness with debilitating suffering that holds no hope of relief or a cure, assisted suicide can be a difficult topic to discuss. Some believe it's a choice that every human being should have; others believe that only God should determine when and how we die. This show will provide you the opportunity to explore your own thoughts and to ultimately decide if this is something you would even consider.
Our incredible guest has a long history with HD. Alan is the Advocacy Chair of the Albany Affiliate of HDSA and is a volunteer on the New York State Department of Health's advisory committee for its Centers of Excellence program for neurodegenerative diseases. He believes that current Death with Dignity legislation unfairly excludes HD patients because of criteria that's impossible to meet. Alan says, "I feel sorry for the HD folks in California because the law that just passed the legislature is the Oregon model." Find out what changes he advocates and why, as well as what he wants the HD community to do about it.
The chat room will be open during our live broadcast for questions and comments.
Help 4 HD International does not advocate for or against Death with Dignity laws. We believe that everyone should be informed about the subject matter in order to make their own educated personal decision. Thank you, Alan, for having the courage to talk openly about this sensitive and controversial topic!

Many older Americans suffer from acute and chronic communication disorders resulting from stroke, head and neck cancer, and neurological diseases, and although speech and language therapy can often improve symptoms and mitigate the impact of communication disorders, access to qualified providers may be limited for some patients due to: poor social supports, finances, or geographical constraints.
For patients with limited physical access to speech-language pathology services, Telehealth, the process of providing services by videoconferencing or web interfaces is becoming an increasingly popular avenue for ensuring patients obtain necessary care from home.
Join us as we explore the current and potential benefits and barriers for treating communication disorders using the telehealth platform.

Tonight, we’re celebrating National Diabetes Awareness month with music from our favorite jazz legend “divabetic”, Ella Fitzgerald.
Ella Fitzgerald, also known as "First Lady of Song" and "Lady Ella", captured audiences everywhere with her astonishing vocal range, scat singing, and improvisational ability.
"I never knew how good our songs were," Ira Gershwin once said, "until I heard Ella Fitzgerald sing them."
Over the decades, Miss Fitzgerald performed with big bands, symphony orchestras and small jazz groups. Her repertory encompassed show tunes, jazz songs, novelties (l "A-Tisket A-Tasket,"), bossa nova, and even opera ("Porgy and Bess”).
From the early 1970's, Miss Fitzgerald began to have eyesight problems complicated by diabetes, and in 1986 she had heart surgery, but she returned to the concert stage the next year.
Unfortunately she had to have both legs amputated below the knee. Despite ill health, she continued to perform at least once month into the early 1990's. Although her quality of voice slowly deteriorated from the early 1970's, even at the end of her career, her singing retained a remarkable rhythmic acuity.
Diabetes Late Nite guests include the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach (Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Susan Weiner MS, RDN, CDE, CDN) Poet Lorraine Brooks, Ansley Dalbo, Best-Selling Author Anna J. Stewart, Leola and Cornelia,and Mama Rose Marie.
Throughout the podcast we will be playing songs from Columbia Jazz: Ella Fitzgerald’s Live album courtesy of SONY Music.
Diabetes Late Nite is a fast-paced, full-filled hour of diabetes education and wellness advice that encourages listeners to “laugh a little, learn a lot.”
