cook childrens logoOn Monday, Nov. 13 at Hochberger Auditorium, the first in a series of quarterly meetings will launch for Cook Children's Medical Center - Fort Worth and Dodson staff. “Significant Safety Event Discussions: Accidental PICC Line Placement” is the first session.

While the event is open to everyone, the presentation is geared toward our medical providers.
