SIDM Featured, Channel 19 News: CNN’s Jake Tapper and daughter Alice speakers at the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine Annual Conference.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, October 2023 (WOIO) – Two years ago, CNN news anchor Jake Tapper almost lost his then 14-year-old daughter Alice.
“Alice got grievously sick and her appendicitis was misdiagnosed and she almost died of sepsis because of this misdiagnosis,” said Tapper.
“I felt helpless,” said Alice’s mother, Jennifer Tapper. “But also trapped because where else was I supposed to go because I was already at a children’s hospital for her.”
