Actor Dennis Quaid, best known for portraying dramatic and comedic roles since the late 1980s, unwittingly became a patient-safety advocate after his ten-day-old twins were mistakenly administered a high dosage of heparin, for which he had filed a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer. He subsequently produced a series of documentaries about preventable medical errors. In an article that he co-wrote, he argued that sharing patient stories had a positive influence in motivating change in healthcare. He also donates the proceeds from the annual golf tournament, the Dennis Quaid Charity Weekend, to support local children's charities. Here are some of his quotes from his speeches, interviews, and media appearances. He often talks about children, acting, life, relationships, politics, and religion.
