Thank you for getting this out to members who were unable to access webinar
today.  An important day for all of us who believe transparency of the
issues related to diagnostic errors is a great beginning for every health
care provider, patient, and institution.  I am excited to read the report
and share with my colleagues.

Best, Julianne
