After Birthday Reflections

Sep 11, 2020

Over 80 people dropped in for my daylong Zigzag birthday. The conversations were illuminating and have certainly given me a lot to ponder during my 54th year. I'll be posting several segments on the Zigzag YouTube channel over the next few weeks. The first one is already there, an inside look at what it has taken to produce the Unite For Safe Care event

During the day I modeled transparency, invited peer review, and heralded the Unite For Safe Care campaign, which has developed over 30 plans of action to ensure that every person who delivers or receives health care around the globe can do so safely. Please consider one or two simple things you can do now to prioritize safe medical care in your own life or that of a loved one. 

  1. Pay tribute to someone you know who has experienced unsafe medical care or advocates for safe care.
  2. RSVP for an inspiring program that broadcasts September 17th.
  3. Learn more about how to be safe when you receive or deliver medical care.
  4. Make a donation to help us ensure that safe medical care is prioritized everywhere.
  5. Light up orange for World Patient Safety Day, September 17th.
  6. Call your local media outlet and ask them to cover this critical topic for public health.
  7. Call your legislators and ask them to prioritize medical safety by supporting a National Patient Safety Agency.
