People for Patient Safety are members of the health care workforce (current or retired), patient advocates, people who care for others as caregivers, and all community members who have experience with the health care system who want to help empower patients and their families to navigate the healthcare system for safe, quality care.

We welcome guest speakers and participation from people to share experiences and knowledge about safe medical treatment.  PPS is not about your health, it's about your health care which is the journey to better health outcomes.

Registration is required. as programs are offered through Zoom. Questions can be addressed to

PPS History

PPS was founded in 2014 as a way for health care professionals, caregivers, and community members to share helpful information about patient safety.  Participants learn from each other what has worked for others and ways to become more knowledgeable about safe care and best practices.

PPS is not about your health and there is no medical advice offered.  PPS is about health care which is the journey to the best health outcomes, often missed in caring for patients.


If you have any ideas for speakers, would like to be a speaker, or are interested in joining this vibrant, active planning committee, please contact one of the team members.
