It is startling.

Hard to believe that there are 400,000 brave individuals buried at Arlington. It was a meaningful time to go see this breathtaking site today with the Telluride Experience group.

And what a shock it was today realizing that this same number- 400,000 is the same number of lives taken by medical error in our country each year. It is haunting. Grave after grave. We could fill a whole Arlington each year.

While we cannot go back to fix our past as a failed healthcare system, we do not have to repeat it. Thank you, Telluride Experience faculty, for equipping future healthcare leaders to make the systems of tomorrow safer for patients and their families.
