Date:6/24/2008

BRANFORD, Conn., June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kristen Michelle Masterson is this year's Miss Fairfield County. The Connecticut Hospice, birthplace of hospice in America, has supervised Kristen's volunteer patient care activities over these last two years, as she been preparing to become a nurse. "Her compassion for those that are suffering has been extraordinary, whether she is attending to one of our pediatric patients or to our young or mature adults," said Soozi Flannigan, RN, MSN, Director of Hospice and Co-Director of Education.

This weekend she will be competing in the Miss Connecticut Scholarship Pageant 80th Year Jubilee, June 27th, 2008, which will be held at the Garde Arts Centre 325 State St, in New London, Connecticut. Kristen's platform is the Connecticut Hospice Program and how important the quality of care is to the patients and their families -- volunteering is her way of giving back to her community, offering a smile, but most importantly holding patients' hands. Kristen will tell you that volunteering brings her a great sense of satisfaction. "The power of one person to make someone's life just a little bit better through kindness, time, and a listening ear is something all of us can do." Kristen knows first hand the importance of quality care for terminally ill patients and their families and what the Connecticut Hospice has to offer not only in Connecticut, but the world.

As Miss Fairfield County, Kristen will continue to educate the public on Hospice Awareness and promote volunteerism. There is a growing need for medical professionals and families to understand what happens during the last weeks, days, and hours of life and what kind of action, or inaction is most likely to bring a comfortable, peaceful, even beautiful, end.

Kristen is a cum laude graduate of the
