Justin still teaches us all, thanks to Dale's generous spirit

Dale Ann Micalizzi started Justin's Hope Project in memory of her 11-year-old son who died as a result of medical errors.  It took her nine years to learn why.

Dale now gives scholarships so that young people involved in pediatric care can attend the IHI Annual Forum and learn more about quality and safety and be among thousands of other people who likewise are committed to these ends.

Here's a video she recently produced that tells her story.  It begins, "The code blue was called," and then the story unfolds.  The video has already prompted some lovely comments on Facebook and is being shared on that platform, and now here (with Dale's permission).

Jim Conway noted: "So tragic, powerful and beautiful. An exceptional lever for change. Our gratitude only grows, Dale."
