Things look a lot bigger and taller from the bottom...

Join us for an On Call Event with Jim Reinerstein

Monday, March 9, 2009 – 5:30-6:30 pm Eastern

Sure, you want to improve the quality of health care. But you’re just a student – who’s going to listen to you?

Plenty of people, if you know how to approach them. Join guest speaker Jim Reinertsen, senior fellow at IHI and the former CEO of three health systems in Minnesota and Massachusetts, as he explains how you can lead from the bottom of your organization. You’ll learn:

* What it means to lead from the bottom up
* The barriers you’re likely to face and how to overcome them
* Communication styles that can increase your influence
* Tips and action ideas you can use right away

Jim Reinertsen, MD, is president of The Reinertsen Group, and has 15 years of experience as a CEO and 20 years as a practicing physician. Among other roles, he has been a member of the IOM Committees that produced To Err Is Human and Crossing the Quality Chasm, and was a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
