CPC Hand-Delivers Patient Testimonies to State Leaders Pleading for No Budget Cuts to Health and Human Services
Date:7/9/2008

SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its efforts to ensure the State's leaders are putting patients first when it comes to developing a State Budget, Californians for Patient Care (CPC), a non-profit, patient-advocacy organization, hand delivered a DVD of patient testimonies to Governor Schwarzenegger as well as other key leaders in the State Legislature today.

"This DVD was designed to provide the State's leaders with a better understanding of how devastating these massive health and human services reductions would be to patients statewide," said CPC President, Maria Robles, RN. "It is Californians for Patient Care's goal that Governor Schwarzenegger and Members of the Legislature not only view these materials, but that they inspire them to join us in working together to make California a State that clearly puts patients first!

The DVD was hand-delivered to Governor Schwarzenegger's staff as well as key leaders of the State Legislature, including: President Pro Tempore, Senator Don Perata; Speaker Karen Bass; Minority Leader, Senator Dave Cogdill and Minority Floor Leader, Assemblyman Michael Villines, among others. In addition, both Assembly Budget Committee Chair John Laird and Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee Chair Denise Ducheny also received copies of the DVD.

Currently, the State's proposed budget cuts would provide millions less in state and federal-matching funds to doctors, hospitals, outpatient treatment centers and ultimately anyone who depends on Medi-Cal for their healthcare needs. Nearly 7 million of California's most vulnerable populations -- including children, senior citizens and the disabled -- will be impacted by these drastic cuts.

For that reason, CPC has been working with patients statewide, to gain insight and learn from families about how they believe these massive reductions would impact their everyday lifestyles and overall health.
