Health Care Quality, Safety & Reform: From TV to real life November 10, 2010 TV’s Dr. House will do anything to beat a disease, even if it kills the patient. Hear from Andrew Holtz, author of The Medical Science of House, M.D.,The Real Grey’s Anatomy and the upcoming House, M.D. vs. Reality, about how popular shows interact with our beliefs about health care. Workshops, skits & a game show will help you define what sort of health care you want and how to get it. Lunch included for confirmed participants. During the afternoon, participants will hear an update on health reform implementation and begin to identify how a transformed health system would look, feel and produce differently than today’s system.
