Marian Hollingsworth, an invaluable member of our California Safe Patient Network and activist with our Docs on Probation campaign, is broadcasting our ongoing fight for patient safety in a new op-ed published by the Sacramento Bee. Marian highlights the Medical Board of California’s lack of transparency as they jeopardize patient safety in favor of protecting the interests and reputations of doctors. With Marian’s help, the Safe Patient Project continues to push for the rights of patients to make informed choices about the doctors they are trusting to treat them.
