Waa waa waa, not while I'm on a plane that has no wifi. :(

Dear Anon,

Your comment was not appropriate for this setting. You misunderstand things. If you would like to talk with me, please call.

Take home lessons from the event:

Medical STUDENTS are most interested in and supportive of learning more about patient safety. Faculty need re-training. Many deans are plus-minus; one "prominent" medical school dean felt the medical students' initiatives were inappropriate.
