BU Panel Features Consumer Quality Council Member

Beginning Thursday, September 25, Boston University School of Public Health will be holding its ninth annual William J. Bicknell Lectureship in Public Health. The two-day event, which attracts more than 300 attendees and is free and open to the public, features presentations by leading scholars and practitioners debating and discussing current public health issues.

The Thursday session, entitled The Role of Personal Narrative in Changing National Health Policy, will feature Linda Klein, a member of Health Care For All’s Consumer Health Quality Council. Linda’s mother was a victim of a series of medical errors and the experience led her to work toward reforming our fragmented health care system. Working with the Consumer Council to improve the quality of health care, Linda’s narrative about her family’s experience is featured in a YouTube video that can be seen at www.hcfama.org/quality/stories. Linda’s story, and the impact it has had on public policy in Massachusetts, is a powerful example of how consumers’ stories can lead to positive change.

    Kuong,

    In “The Role of Personal Narrative in Changing National Health Policy”, is the sense of “personal narrative” a legal term suggesting objectivity itself is neither an ideal nor normally even a possibility?
