Please join the Academy, United Hospital Fund and IPRO on November 12 at 6:00 PM for an advance screening of the documentary To Err is Human followed by a panel discussion including the director.

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. To Err Is Human is an in-depth documentary about this silent epidemic and those working behind the scenes to create a new age of patient safety, directed by Mike Eisenberg, the son of late patient safety pioneer, Dr. John M. Eisenberg.

Through interviews with leaders in health care, footage of real-world efforts leading to safer care, and one family's compelling journey from tragedy to triumph, the film provides a unique look at our health care system's ongoing fight against preventable harm.

Panelists join filmmaker Eisenberg in a discussion, and to field audience questions, on how we can collaboratively make tangible improvements in the health care system for better patient outcomes.
