Description

Jessica Zitter redefines what a medical hero looks like.


In a field where the default is always more procedures and more technology, Dr. Zitter's journey led her to put her patients first. What does this person love to do? Who does this person love to be with?

Dr. Zitter wrote "Extreme Measures," and is featured in Extremis, an Oscar-nominated documentary. She is an intensive care unit and palliative care doctor at Highland Hospital in Oakland, California.

Alameda Alliance for Health will kindly provide free CEUs to our community of providers at the event.
