Speaker:

Dr. Erika Preisig was born in Basel, Switzerland as one of seven children. She went to school and studied medicine in Basel. After finishing her studies, she worked as an assistant doctor for two years in Manchester England. She then started doing locums for doctors in the countryside of Switzerland.

Erika had three children between 1989 and 1992, still working as a GP, doing a lot of palliative care. In 2005, her father accessed assisted dying with Dignitas, which led her to start working for Dignitas from 2007 to 2012 as a consultant doctor. In 2011, Erika founded lifecircle as she wanted to do more than be a consultant doctor of Dignitas. "With lifecircle, we can be active for promoting quality of life, if quality of life cannot be promoted any more, we can at least give a peaceful death with the foundation Eternal Spirit."
