"It was an eye opening presentation that really brought awareness to the issue of medical errors. Thanks to Sorrel and her family for their strength to push on and help for the positive. What a powerful message and speaker. It made this issue very personalized and I will definitely remember this for a long time."

"Thank you again for coming to speak to our staff. You are doing such wonderful things for the healthcare industry. I have heard nothing but positive comments Those unable to attend have asked when they would be able to see the taped presentation. Some even said, 'can we get her back?!'"

ABOUT SORREL KING

  • Nursing Journal
  • Condition H
  • Disclosure program
  • Patient Journal App
  • Josie’s Story: A Patient Safety Curriculum created in partnership with health educators from Duke University Health system.

These projects and programs have been implemented by hospitals around the country.

Josie’s Story was named one of the best health books in 2009 by the Wall Street Journal and won the “First Book” award at the 2010 “Books for a Better Life” Awards.
