Call for Volunteers for SIDM & DEM-2014


Our 6th Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference is quickly approaching - September 22-25 in Chicago.  This year's meeting, with featured presentations by Christine Cassel, Brent James, and Bob Wachter, is on track to be the best one yet.  Its not too late to register, and a very limited number of hotel rooms are still left at very attractive conference-preferred rates.   Register at: <>

Want to be more involved in future?  The SIDM Board is looking for volunteers for several of our committees, including the Atlanta DEM 2014 planning committee.  Please contact me if you are interested in serving on any of the following groups:

   Diagnostic Error in Medicine  2014 Meeting Planning Committee - We seek volunteers who can help develop themes and content for future meetings, help identify and recruit session leaders and speakers, draft session descriptions, recruit attendees and participate in presenting next year's DEM Conference.  Committee members must be prepared to spend a few hours per month on conference development and committee calls.

   Communications Committee  -  We need volunteers to help identify content and write narratives for the DEM newsletter.  Help us implement the SIDM goal of raising awareness about the problem of diagnostic error among all our stakeholder groups.

   Membership Committee  -  We need volunteers to help develop relationships with other professional societies and groups and promote both individual and organizational membership.

Please email me directly if you would like to participate, or with any questions. Thanks!
