 5:30 to 6 p.m., sign in and refreshments

 Part I Establishing principles of health information

 6 to 6:30 p.m., Film “Greg’s Story – Falling through the Cracks” 

Falling Through the Cracks: “Greg’s Story” is a short film on Greg Price’s journey through the healthcare system. The film gives a glimpse of who Greg was and focuses on the events of his healthcare journey that ended in his unexpected and tragic death. Despite the sadness of Greg’s story, the message of the film is intended to inspire positive change and improvement in the healthcare system. We believe the film will resonate with the audience and create a platform for further dialogue. We hope people will feel empowered and challenge the status quo of the current healthcare system so we all end up with better care and outcomes.
