Date:3/2/2010

WASHINGTON, March 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Maine Governor John Baldacci is honored tonight with the American Medical Association's (AMA) top government service award for an elected official. He will be presented with the award by chief medical editor for NBC News, Nancy Snyderman, M.D., at an awards dinner tonight in Washington, D.C. as part of the AMA's National Advocacy Conference.

"Governor Baldacci has truly improved the health of the people of Maine with the creation of Dirigo Health Agency," said AMA Board Chair Rebecca J. Patchin, M.D.  "He has also led the effort to improve and enhance Maine's public health infrastructure, and recently unveiled a universal wellness initiative."

Governor Baldacci is one of nine honorees chosen this year to receive the Dr. Nathan Davis Award for Outstanding Government Service. The award, named for the founding father of the AMA, recognizes elected and career officials in federal, state or municipal service whose outstanding contributions have promoted the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health.

"Through the Nathan Davis Awards, the American Medical Association salutes government officials who go above and beyond the call of duty to improve public health," said Dr. Patchin. "Award winners come from every branch of government service and are a testament to the important role public officials play in creating and implementing health policy that benefits Americans."

Governor Baldacci was nominated for the award by the Maine Medical Association.

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Dr. Nathan Davis Awards. Others being honored this year include U.S. Representative Donna Christensen and Florida State Senator Don Gaetz.
