MITSS Annual Dinner

Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS) is a non-profit organization whose mission is “To Support Healing and Restore Hope” to those patients, family members, and clinicians who have been affected by a medical error or an adverse medical event.

MITSS holds one major fund-raising event each year, and it will be held on November 12 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Proceeds from the event will be used to fund support groups for patients, families, and clinicians; individual counseling; phone support and referral assistance. MITSS also work with health care organizations to assist them in setting up an internal process for supporting their clinicians.

The keynote speaker for the event is Susan E. Sheridan, Co-founder and President of CAPS, Consumers Advancing Patient Safety, which focuses on creating a partnership between consumers and providers of care.

MITSS is an organization worthy of support. For more information, click here.
