Date:7/1/2009

Selected as one of the Nation's Leading "Social Innovators" for Healthcare Education; Receives Prestigious Recognition by President Obama at the White House

CONCORD, Mass., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Charlotte Cowan, creator and author of the Dr. Hippo Series of Children's Books, has been selected by the Obama Administration as one of the leading social innovators in the country. In an exclusive reception at the White House this week, Dr. Cowan was recognized by President Obama and members of his recently-formed White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation.

Dr. Cowan was chosen by the Obama administration for her five award-winning, creative children's books aimed at educating parents and children about ubiquitous illnesses, decreasing family anxiety and reducing unnecessary and expensive reliance on doctor offices and emergency rooms. After training and practicing pediatrics for many years at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, Dr. Cowan formed the Hippocratic Press in 2004 to focus creatively on those illnesses that affect tens of millions of American families and cost billions of healthcare dollars.

During the reception, President Obama commented: "There's only so much that Washington can do. Government can reform our health care system, but we need innovative approaches to help people manage their illnesses and lead healthier lives. Ultimately, the best solutions don't come from the top-down, not from Washington; they come from the bottom-up in each and everyone one of our communities. Today, I want to recognize that pioneering spirit and thank you for the contributions that you're making to our communities."

Dr. Cowan's books turn time-honored Hippocrates into a kindly pediatrician and protagonist in her Dr. Hippo Series of children's picture books. Each of Dr. Cowan's books, The Little Elephant with t
