Date:1/5/2009

CHICAGO, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing its efforts to educate, inform, and empower the people of Chicago, SAVE THE PATIENT, a not- for-profit patient-focused organization, is hosting its 25-minute live call-in show, "Community Health," on Chicago Access Network (CAN-TV) on Monday, January 12, 2009 at 6:00 PM on Channel 21.

Monday's program will feature an intimate discussion with Dr. Arthur Dorf, Eye Physician and Surgeon on how to choose and use your eye doctor, and the importance of an eye exam with a Board Certified Ophthalmologist (medical doctor specializing in the eye).

The goal of the series is to give everyday people the confidence to enact their patient rights, so that they can effectively manage their families' health encounters.

All the efforts of SAVE THE PATIENT promote positive and productive interactions between patients and medical professionals by encouraging individuals to know and implement their rights to ask questions, receive understandable answers, and explore medical options. "SAVE THE PATIENT's mission is to assist the public in becoming better health care consumers," noted President and Founder Lenore Janecek.

Viewers who wish to join discussions can call-in to pose questions or share concerns. "This new televised platform gives Chicago's diverse population a voice in matters affecting their use of health care," explained Janecek. "The open discussion format is designed to help mend the disparity between the wealth of health care resources available and the lack of people who are actually aware of them." Ms. Janecek, a nationally known health care expert and author, is the host of this groundbreaking program.

Check your local cable television listings for scheduled air times. For additional information call: CAN-TV at 312-738-1400 or e-mail savethepatient@aol.com.
