San Diego Summits - Follow Up

What a delight it was to meet you in San Diego!

Whether you attended one, two, or all three sessions, we hope you feel like you got as much value from your time and energy as you could, and that everything you learned, and the people you met, will support your efforts as you build or grow you advocacy practice.

Find below the follow-up information we promised:

Your Reminder: Comment in the Connect Forum

Here’s a link to make that as easy as can be. We’d love others to know what you thought of your experience! (I see a few of you have already weighed in – thanks!)

If you feel it was a positive experience, please encourage others to attend our Summits in other cities.

Updated Attendee List

A few folks registered late and therefore were not listed on the Attendee list you received. Here is an updated version with everyone included so you can make contact with the folks you met, including our leaders.


Regina Holliday – Walking Gallery

You asked about Trisha’s shirt and the artist who painted it. That artist is Regina Holliday. You can find more about the Walking Gallery and her hundreds of paintings on her website.

And here is what Regina wrote after she completed my jacket.

I am always very proud to wear it to showcase Regina’s work toward patient safety and my own appreciation for her investment in our cause.


Session Notes – Follow Up

Here are the notes Sandy took for us (thanks Sandy!) and the answers I’ve been able to find to the questions you asked during our sessions:

Marketing to employers: SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Also, find articles and podcasts on the site by doing a search for “employers”

Google Scholar: to find health and specialty information

App for making phone calls, including overseas calls: WhatApp? (different versions for iPhones and Androids)

How to Blog There are articles and podcasts in the site. I’m linking a few because “blogging” is a term that brings up many, many results so the specific “how to” ones may be hard to find.


Thanks for much for being there. We hope to see you again soon!
