EJF Invited to Give Patient Safety Lecture at D’Youville College in Buffalo, New York
This past week, marked my first trip since being broadsided by a Mack truck that ran a red light on February 22nd. It felt absolutely amazing to get back to doing the work I am truly passionate about with the Emily Jerry Foundation…trying to help stop tragedies before they happen and ultimately saving lives from preventable medical error!
I had the privilege of being invited to D’Youville College in Buffalo, New York, to give a lecture on patient and medication safety to our future leaders in healthcare. I was also asked to participate in a panel discussion on preventable medical error, following a viewing of a powerful new documentary, called “To Err Is Human”, that was produced and directed by my friend Mike Eisenberg.
To top everything off, I also met, and had a great in-depth conversation, with New York Times, best selling author, Andre Dubus III, who also happened to be at D’Youville College for a lecture and book signing! Bottom line, I’m feeling extremely grateful!
The Emily Jerry Foundation is determined to help make our nation’s,
