Here’s your opportunity to contribute to research of interest to Humanists! We have been contacted by researchers at York University and the University of Ottawa who are specifically looking for Humanists to participate in the following studies:

Legal Medically-Assisted Death

An interview based study with people who identify themselves as being in favour of legal medically-assisted death.

Conducted by a PhD candidate in sociology at York University, doing research on the medically-assisted death movement, this study involves a telephone interview scheduled at your convenience. In the current phase of the study, interviews are focused on how spiritual, moral or philosophical beliefs shape individuals’ understanding and experience of end of life issues. To participate in the study, you must:

  • Follow, have followed, or participate or have participated, in the activities of organizations that support legal medically-assisted death
  • be 18 years old or older
  • be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident

If you are interested in getting more information about taking part in the study, please contact Carmen Grillo at cmgrillo@yorku.ca.
