Patient Safety Isn't Funny, but Laughter Is Still the Best Medicine!

I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.  —   Joan Rivers

I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.

Joan Rivers

Two years ago September, comedian Joan Rivers died BECAUSE of the medical care she received. Did she know that medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in the country?

Remember the laughter she gave us, and support patient safety education and advocacy by coming to hear cutting-edge comedy in memory of a woman who became famous by making us laugh.
