Join Amy Ridgway, nurse and the confidential informant, whose courage ended the career of serial killer Charles Cullen is in the New York Times Bestseller book by Charles Graeber, The Good Nurse.
Together we will be watching and tweeting as Amy Ridgway is a guest on The Katie Couric show at 3 ET. Afterwards, we will have a first ever blog radio talk with Amy herself at 4 ET here . She provides inspiration on her own spiritual journey from child abuse to heart problems to working undercover to catch serial killer Charles Cullen. But more, she looks at all the good in #nurses, health providers, and patients- each who has a soul and a life she honors- and how we can turn tragedy into real change in our own lives and within healthcare.
Carpool Health has always adressed the big health topics, the ones that affect our daily lives, and those that are coming head-on with compassion, support, and everyone within health at the table. This unique opportunity will give us in an inside view into the hurdles set up by the system to prevent accurate reporting, the hard honesty and decisions of the informants from the book, and the author's almost decade long dedication into uncovering the truth about Charles Cullen, the nurse who killed up to 400 patients while on duty in hospitals.
You can also join us on Tuesdays at 1 ET at #CPHC on twitter- tomorrow Amy will be the live guest- when #CPHC has a weekly chat bringing together physicians, nurses, patients, caregivers and everyone who wants to turn the challenges of healthcare and personal health into solutions. Amy is just one example of the type of inspirational guests in our communities.

Nurse Charles Cullen killed about 400 patients over 16 years, confessed after being caught, andt then spoke to no-one again. Years later, he spoke to the editor of Wired Magazine Charles Graeber. Why? While known for his work in GQ, The New Yorker, National Geographic and New York Magazine, why did Cullen answer Graeber's letter? Drawn to the easy nature of Cullen at times, even Graeber could forget over the years of interviews that he was near befriending a serial killer while at the same time being the only person to tell the full story.
Despite detailed endnotes, there was not enough room to tell everything the author learned in writng The Good Nurse, which remains on the NY Times Best Seller List. There is much about the story we still do not know.
And despite interviews across the country including 60 Minutes and The Katie Couric Show, there is much about the author audiences do not know. Why did he leave medical school to travel the world and enter war torn areas for investigative journalism? What has his life been like from scientist to author? Who is the man that the serial killer broke years of silence to tell everything?
In the only extended heart to heart with Charles Graeber we will dig deep into the man, his years from medicine to the impact of living in constant danger. What can he teach us as an author of everything from a peer-review journal, to living the life of successful, award wining full-time journalist? He is complex, extraordinarily interesting, multi-layered and remarkably honest. This is an interview you won't want to miss!
