Foundation Supports Eighth Annual Telluride Patient Safety Educational Roundtable
The Doctors Company Foundation provided a grant to the University of Illinois Institute for Patient Safety Excellence to support the Eighth Annual Telluride Patient Safety Educational Roundtable, “Transforming Mindsets.”
This year, the Foundation expanded its grant to include two week-long sessions—allowing a total of 40 medical students and residents to participate. The sessions brought together student scholars with leaders in patient safety, health science education, and medicine to explore open, honest communication and transparency in the delivery of care.
“Amidst all of the challenges faced by our health care system, it is difficult not to be inspired by the passion, sophistication, and commitment of the next generation of America’s physicians,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company, who participated in the final week’s roundtable. “I was extremely proud of The Doctors Company Foundation’s contribution to this signal conclave.”
