Leslie and ABC News' Jon Karl in conversation

  • The National Press Club 529 14th St NW Washington, DC, 20045 United States (map)

ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl will interview Leslie about The Patient's Playbook at The National Press Club on Wednesday, Sept 9, 2015.

In this highly anticipated discussion, Leslie will reveal insider tips from the book, including:

  • Why it doesn’t cost more to get the country’s best specialists on your case — and how to exploit this quirk in our health care system.
  • The 6 steps to finding the “No-Mistake Zone” in medicine. Medical error contributes to the deaths of 400,000 Americans a year — that’s akin to two fully loaded jumbo jets crashing every single day, with no survivors. Michelson’s step-by-step process has helped thousands of patients avoid error and achieve exceptional results.
  • The 5 must-visit websites. About 60,000 medical articles are published every month — twice as many as a decade ago. We can’t expect our doctors to be up-to-date on the latest advances for our conditions. Michelson explains how to be a savvy online researcher.

The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, September 9, at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C., 529 14th St. NW, in the Zenger Room.

RSVP is REQUIRED as space is limited. Contact Susan Forbes at 678 770 1305, or by email at Continental breakfast and coffee will be served. Copies of the book will be available to journalists who attend.
