Regina Holliday keynotes in Australia!

A 'patient harm' advocate keynotes in Australia!

Regina Holliday is a young mother of two sons who is tirelessly working to make sure that all patients have access to their medical record.  Her husband's death was fraught with medical missteps and gaffs that were hurtful and altogether preventable.  It is her mission that these health system errors are corrected.

She is now in Sydney, Australia to keynote the Health Informatics Conference.

While she is working for us, let us overwhelm her with donations to her favorite causes!

Provide travel/conference cost support for patients and their advocates.
Please purchase her new book  The Walking Wall: 73 Cents to The Walking Gallery
