There are times that are fleeting and special, that must be captured on video so they can be shared for years to come. That’s how I feel about the day we finally met our PV Impact Award winners—people whose stories moved us and brought the audience at the Leapfrog Group annual meeting to their feet.
We are inspired by you. Not just saying that. It’s what we’ve been hearing again and again.
To Becky, Wendy, and Liz – thank you for traveling to DC so that we could meet you, and thanks to all our finalists for your giving and generous spirit in reaching out to help others. To Stuart Baur of Payette and your team – thank you for being a Patient Champion and helping to create Wendy’s story. For Leah Binder and her crack team at The LeapfrogGroup, thank you for setting a standard for excellence in health care quality, and for inviting us to share the stage with you. To the PVI team, you are the best! To NBME, our sponsor, thank you for supporting the patient voice. And to Shawn Wehland, creator of the video above, thank you for “getting” the essence of what PVI is about.
Here’s to all of you working every day to make good health care a “given” every day, every time. You are our heroes. Happy Holidays, everyone!
