West Des Moines United Methodist Church

The dangers of medical mistakes will be discussed on Sunday, June 1 at 10:00 a.m. and Thursday, June 5 at 7 p.m. at Lifetree Café, hosted at the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, 720 Grand Avenue, West Des Moines, Iowa.

The program, titled “Doctor Danger: What Every Patient Needs to Know,” features a filmed interview with Dr. Martin Makary, a cancer surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital and author of Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won’t Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care.

“There are lots of things hospitals don’t tell you,” says Makary. “As many as 25 percent of patients are harmed by medical mistakes. It’s an epidemic, and it kills more people than HIV and car accidents combined.”

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

To get to the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, located in the western part of the Des Moines, Iowa, area, take Interstate-235 to the 8th Street/73rd Street exit (Exit 3). Go south on 8th Street to Grand Avenue. The church is on the southeast corner of the intersection. Parking is available behind the church building.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. For questions about Lifetree may be directed to Paige Chapman at 515-279-0826 or info@lifetreecafe.com. More information is available at Lifetreecafe.com.
