AND FOUNDER OF FRAN
Joy Fritz was trained in the California Electronic Death Registration System and worked at two separate mortuary firms from 2013 to 2019 in Los Angeles County, processing nearly 5,000 death certificates. She coordinated the death record registration communications between doctors, medical examiner/coroners, and the local and state vital record registrars to accomplish the necessary death certificate process. Compelled by the rampant inaccuracies in cause of death reporting that was only exacerbated by the pandemic mortality reporting, she founded the Factual Reporting Advocacy Network in 2021, with the mission to provide education and support to those involved in the death investigation and reporting process, so as to foster a culture of truth and accuracy in the causes we attribute to death.
