Chris Jerry speaking at SEA

Chris Jerry has spoken at over 100 venues since the Foundation was established as an accredited 501(c)3 in August, 2009.

Background: From working as the primary spokesman for the Foundation, Chris Jerry (our Founder and President) had developed into an accomplished and engaging speaker. He has given more than 100 lectures, keynotes speeches, and presentations on patient safety and ways to reduce preventable medical errors at hospitals and medical conferences throughout the United States.

Although many of Chris’s speaking engagements have similar content, every one of them is uniquely tailored to the audience or modality in medicine that he is addressing.

Subject Matter: Chris specializes in speaking about patient safety and preventable medical errors, in particular medication errors as well as “just culture principles in medicine”. He shares Emily’s story and the extremely important lessons learned since her passing. Approximately 85% of Chris’s speaking engagements and lectures historically have been CME and/or CE Accredited.

Typical Audience: Clinicians, hospital administrators, boards of trustees for medical facilities, etc., are the ones who really benefit from hearing him speak, since they are able to affect positive change in the overall “culture of medicine” and how it’s currently practiced. On average, a live audience of 300 to 500 people have heard Chris speak at once, with as many as 2,500 who were all registered pharmacists at the ASHP Mid-Year Meeting in Las Vegas. Many of the venues have webcasted Chris’s presentations live to additional audiences at facilities within their healthcare system.

Ratings: Chris consistently has scored very high marks on CME and CE reviews after his lectures. See testimonials.
