Julie Devaney: My Leaky Body 

The Health Sciences Council is very pleased to present 
Julie Devaney, patient expert, author and performer for a very special talk during Patient Safety Week 2012.


My Leaky Body, Tales from the Gurney is a play, a book and an interactive workshop series based on Devaney's experiences in the health care system.
"Raw, harrowing, and darkly funny, Julie Devaney argues convincingly for fixes to the system and better training for all medical personnel."  
Julie was named  one of 2011's Women Health Heroes  by Best Health Magazine and has attracted national media attention.
"Devaney truly understands and gives informed and supportive voice to healthcare experiences of patients. My Leaky Body  should be on the required reading list of every medical student who truly wants to understand the meaning of patient centered care." - Donald W. McKay, PhD, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education, Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Please join us to hear Julie's story and her advice for patients, health care professionals and educators alike.
