Consumers Union “To Err Is Human, To Delay Is Deadly” Webcast

On November 17, 2009, Consumers Union hosted a forum in Washington DC based on the 10-year anniversary of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) 1999 study on medical harm challenging our health system’s progress on preventing medical harm 10 years later. We released a report earlier in the year on this subject. You can view our entire forum via webcast.
