Description

WATCH THE TRAILER

To Err Is Human: A Patient Safety Documentary is an upcoming feature documentary, directed by Mike Eisenberg, the son of patient safety pioneer and Memphis native Dr. John M. Eisenberg.

Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year, making it the #3 leading cause of death in the United States. This is a documentary about the silent epidemic of preventable harm in medicine and the people working behind the scenes to fix it. The movie features dozens of leaders in health care and policy, as well as a compelling story of one family's journey from victim to empowered patient advocate.

The documentary will be released in late 2018, but this event, sponsored by Memphis Business Group on Health, the Memphis Medical District Collaborative, and the Southern College of Optometry is an exclusive opportunity for the Memphis community to view the documentary well in advance of its public release. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about the film and its topics related to patient safety.


REGISTRATION will open at 4:00pm
