Faculty and Students,

You are invited to a special interprofessional event. There are two options to attend. NOTE you will need to register due to space limitations.

In November 2000, a gifted and healthy 15-year-old boy named Lewis Blackman died tragically in the hospital where he had undergone elective surgery. His death was caused by preventable errors and a profound lack of teamwork and communication–factors that cause tens of thousands of similar preventable deaths each year. This interprofessional event will begin with a screening of “The Story of Lewis Blackman” followed by a moderated discussion with Lewis Blackman’s mother, Helen Haskill. All professionals from UNC Health Affairs schools along with UNC Healthcare and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers program are encouraged to attend. A trailer for the film can be found here.
