Be a part of the change that is taking place in the Right-to-Die movement. Participants from Canada, the U.S., and Latin America will come together to share best practices, learn from each other, and find inspiration and insight.
Dying in the Americas 2018 will take place March 21-25, 2018, at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada, a serene city in the foothills between the Hoover Dam and Lake Meade to the east and Las Vegas to the northwest.
Besides the great conference programming that you won't want to miss, you can savor the area's beautiful red-rock scenery with plenty of hiking, cycling, and boating options. Enjoy the nightlife in Las Vegas, with many shows, shops, and events to choose from.
