End-of-Life Choice, Palliative Care and Counseling


Compassion & Choices has active local members from areas such as Annapolis, Silver Spring and Baltimore. In 2013 the Maryland legislature passed, and the Governor signed into law, an advance directive registry.

Local groups are engaging and organizing their communities to help ensure everyone can achieve a peaceful death. If you would like to get involved with our Maryland actions or join a local group, contact our local organizers or check the list of local events, both below.
