In recognition of National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12, Sorrel King, a nationally renowned patient safety advocate and author of “Josie’s Story,” will present at the Lincoln Theater on Tuesday, May 7, at 5 p.m.

Participants will learn about the medical errors that led to Sorrel’s 18-month-old daughter Josie’s death in 2001, the improvements that have come about as a result of that tragedy and methods that facilitate effective communication between patients and providers.

“Sorrel travels the country to share her powerful story and inspire action to create a better, safer health care industry for us all,” commented LincolnHealth Chief Nursing Officer Christine Anderson, RN, BSN, NE-BC. “We are pleased to welcome her to Damariscotta, and look forward to the conversations that will take place.”

This event is free and open to the community, but LincolnHealth will be collecting donations for the Josie King Foundation and a future scholarship fund for LincolnHealth nurses.

The Lincoln Theater is at 2 Theater Street.
