Nationally recognized health policy experts Susan Dentzer, Carl Flatley, DDS, MSD and Marcus Friderich, MD, MBA are featured speakers at IPRO’s 33rd Annual Meeting, to be held Tuesday June 6 at the LaGuardia Marriott Hotel in East Elmhurst, NY. Chief Executive Officer of the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation, Dentzer works closely with foundation leaders to carry out the organizational mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans. One of the nation’s most respected health and health policy thought leaders and journalists, she is also an on-air analyst on health issues on the PBS NewsHour. Carl Flatley founded the American Sepsis Alliance in 2004 after his daughter Erin died from septic shock, something Dr. Flatley, a retired endodontist, had never heard of. Marcus Friedrich is the medical director of the Office of Quality and Patient Safety in the New York State Department of Health. Among Dr. Friedrich’s responsibilities is a leadership role in New York’s development of the nation’s first public reporting initiative analyzing hospital performance on sepsis management. In addition to these speakers, the Annual Meeting includes presentation of the 2017 IPRO Quality Awards to providers from across the state of New York.
