Delaware Residents Participate in Launch of National Video Campaign: 'Say 'Yes' to Health Reform'
Date:10/1/2009

nts suffer from at least one of the seven most common chronic conditions. The total cost, including direct expenditure (e.g., health care cost) and indirect cost (e.g., lost productivity), related to these seven chronic diseases alone amount to $4 billion.

While these figures alone are staggering, the newly-released Web-based video campaign puts a human face on the issue in an effort to draw the attention of national policymakers so - now that they are back in Washington - they do not lose sight of the concerns of the everyday Americans they represent.

Delawarean Michele Gladney, Director of Clinical Services at Henrietta Johnson Medical Center, one of 13 featured speakers on the national Web site supports bridging gaps between patients and physicians. "By bridging these gaps it will provide accessibility treatment for prevention of chronic disease, improve communication during office visits for adherence and our maintenance of clinical regimens; and it will provide financial support for prescription coverage and office visits," Gladney stated.

To date, the "Say 'Yes' to Health Reform" campaign features over 100 videos submitted by residents of Delaware as well as Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin. The video testimonials represent a diverse mix of concerned individuals - from patients and caregivers, to physicians, nurses and other clinicians, to business owners and local leaders. Many live with a chronic illness or care for a chronically ill friend or family member.

Through the remainder of the health care debate, the campaign Web site will be continuously updated with new video testimonials, which will be sent to Congressional members representing Delaware and other participating states.
