Washington Post Article: Misdiagnosis is more common than drug errors or wrong-site surgery. 
The article by Sandra Boodman of the Washington Post discusses Rory Staunton, Itzhak Brook and doctors helping organize the DEM conference and working to improve diagnoses in medicine like David Newman-Toker and Mark Graber.
I found this article incredibly beneficial and would now ask everyone I know to ask about a differential diagnosis. I would now push anyone to ask “please help me understand/list what else this could be.”  
Thanks.  Karen Holliman
