VCU Langston Center – Improving healthcare quality and safety.
The Langston Center for Quality, Safety and Innovation is a new resource at Virginia Commonwealth University dedicated to providing the health community with education, activities, and resources that foster collaborative, patient-centered, cost-effective health care.
