The event will be held Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020 in the Natalie and Lansing B. Lee Jr. Auditorium and attendees will have the option of going to the morning session from 8-11:30 a.m. or the afternoon session being held 1-4:30 p.m. The learning will continue the next day with PFCC Grand Rounds from 8-9 a.m. in the Lee Auditorium.

Prior to her work at the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, Sheridan held positions at the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the World Health Organization. Her work to improve outcomes for patients is inspired by her own adverse family experiences in the healthcare system.

In addition to Sheridan’s presentation, other conference highlights include a panel discussion on patient safety, rapid-fire AU Health innovations and tips to enhance safe outcomes.  CEU/CME credits are available for attending the conference.

This event is sponsored by AU Health’s Center for Patients and Families in partnership with the institution’s Office of Clinical Quality Excellence. Register here.  For more information, email the Center for Patients and Families or call 706-721-7322.
