Health care kills more than 600,000 people every year, the equivalent of the population of Boston. Elizabeth defines our hidden assumptions about health care, medications, and treatments and why these assumptions put you in danger.

She was an executive with Johnson & Johnson for 20 years. She became interested in patient safety after she had personal experiences with health care that almost led to her death.
