Date:4/3/2009

WASHINGTON, April 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fran Drescher, an award-winning actress, author and comedienne who is now the U.S. State Department Special Envoy for Women's Health, will describe her amazement at her new job at a National Press Club luncheon on April 14.

Drescher was instrumental in winning passage of the first Gynecological Cancer Education and Awareness Act. She now helps spend its money by trying to ensure that all women worldwide with cancer are diagnosed at Stage One, when it is most curable. Her publicist says she'll succeed because she is "a Russell" - with Rosalind's comic timing, Jane's curves and Jack's tenacity.

An eight-year uterine cancer survivor, Drescher authored Enter Whining and Cancer Schmancer, both New York Times best-sellers. She has received two Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal of "Miss Fine" on the CBS TV series "The Nanny," a show she also created, wrote, directed and executive-produced. She appeared in the HBO hit series "Entourage" and starred in the WB series "Living with Fran."

As a stage actress, Drescher performed in Neil La Bute's "Some Girls," directed by Jo Bonney; "The Exonerated," directed by Bob Balaban; and most recently in the New York Philharmonic's "Camelot" at Lincoln Center. She says her proudest film roles, among dozens, are a memorable five-minute appearance in "This Is Spinal Tap" and stardom in "Beautician and the Beast," with Timothy Dalton.

The National Press Club luncheon will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. and Drescher's remarks will begin just after 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. Advance reservations should be made by contacting reservations at the National Press Club, (202) 662-7501 or reservations@press.org. Cost of luncheon admission is $17 for National Press Club members, $28 for their guests and $35 for general admission. Credentialed press may cover this event with proper ID.

The National Press Club is located at 14th and F Streets, NW, one block west of Metro Center. For more information about the Club and its programs is go to press.org.
