Attend a reception and screening of “The Checklist Effect”at ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2017 to benefit Lifebox®
Once again, ASA will host a fundraiser at the ANESTHESIOLOGY annual meeting to gather anesthesia professionals and a charitable organization to raise awareness and donations that will impact the specialty and its patients. This year, ASA is excited to support Lifebox, an organization chaired by ANESTHESIOLOGY 2017 keynote speaker Dr. Atul Gawande, that strives to improve the safety of surgeries in low-resource settings.
A safe operation is more than a series of clinical steps done right, and every day anesthesia providers and their care teams work tirelessly to ensure successful procedures and outcomes for their patients. But without the right equipment, training and peer support, a lifesaving operation can quickly become life-threatening.
