At the close of 2019 (November 8th), we had the privilege of attending the Prospera Business Network's 34th Annual Business Excellence Awards Dinner in Bozeman, Montana. With hundreds of local Montana leaders, businesses, and entrepreneurs gathered for an open bar, appetizers, photo booth, raffle, and awards dinner—it was quite the red carpet gala. This event was especially exciting because Best Practice Medicine's own CEO and Co-founder, Ben King, was a finalist for the 2019 "Entrepreneur of the Year" Award!
Have you and your organization taken advantage of this amazing opportunity?

Have you ever watched a film so impactful that you wanted all your friends, family, and colleagues to see it? Recently we encountered just such a film: To Err is Human - A Patient Safety Documentary. It's such a big deal, in fact, that we're screening the film for free (with a special Q&A panel with Montana medical experts right after) and inviting all who can make it to attend.
"For anyone working in the medical field as a provider, administrator, educator, or healer--or even if you’ve been a witness to or affected by medical mistakes--this is an event you'll want to attend."
Do you know what the third leading cause of death is in the US? It's not diabetes, stroke, or even Alzheimer's. It's medical errors. Read that again. Medical errors. Medical mistakes lead to as many as 440,000 preventable deaths every year. That's the equivalent of 7-8 jumbo jets crashing every day with no survivors. With good reason, many medical experts are declaring this a public health emergency.
Join us Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 7PM at the Ellen Theatre in downtown Bozeman.
This is an event you don't want to miss out on. (Watch the trailer below). RSVP Here!
