Joint Commission Resources (JCR), Oak Brook, Ill, plans to host the 2008 Luminary Audio Series—a three-part audio conference featuring leaders in the health care industry, such as Mark R. Chassin, MD, president, The Joint Commission; Donald M. Berwick, MD, president and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement; and Lucian L. Leape, MD, and adjunct professor of health policy, Harvard School of Public Health.

The sessions are scheduled for January 25, March 21, and May 23.

Each 60-minute conference features a presentation by an industry leader followed by a Q-and-A session. Topics include how to keep pace with challenges facing the health care industry, and how health care organizations can collaborate with other groups and resources to foster change that enhances the standard of care for patients.
