Lecture Description

Our speakers, Dr. Jeff Goldenberg and Naomi Kirtner, are the parents of Talia Goldenberg, who died tragically at age 23 following spinal surgery. Talia, her physician father and her mother pleaded with doctors and medical staff, urging them to recognize that Talia couldn’t breathe.

Talia’s parents have a powerful story to share. As founders of @taliasvoice: Projects for Patient Safety, they are agents for change, telling Talia’s story in hospitals, medical and nursing schools, health management programs—anywhere that healthcare workers and patients intersect.
