The Team

The #uniteforsafecare campaign was founded by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation but wouldn’t be possible without the support and volunteerism of hundreds of people across the globe. 

In January of 2019, about two dozen patient safety advocates gathered in Huntington Beach, California to discuss how to move the needle from the patient and family perspective. One of those ideas was a March for Patient Safety. A small group of volunteers took that idea and forming a steering committee to start researching what it would take to organize such an event. 

In 2020 we organized two “in-person” but socially distanced events in Newport Beach, CA (as pictured) and Washington, DC to gather and bring awareness to unsafe care.

We are still not able to organize a large, public March in 2021 but hope that we may be able to in 2022 when we’re back to a new normal. We believe that raising public awareness is our first step to organizing a successful March in the future. 

Thank You to Our Volunteers

The team would like to express our gratitude for the volunteer time invested in making the second annual #uniteforsafecare campaign another successful virtual event, raising funds and awareness for patient safety around the world. Thank you for your time and talents!
