Tennesseans to Show Their Support by Wearing Blue and Yellow Ribbons on June 19

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Emphasizing the need for all patients in Tennessee to have ready access to the best possible healthcare when illness strikes, Governor Phil Bredesen, for the second consecutive year, has declared June 19 Patient Advocacy Day. Patients, caregivers and other members of Tennessee's health care community have been asked to demonstrate their support by wearing a blue or gold ribbon and will participate in this initiative to raise awareness for needed access to timely, consistent and quality healthcare for all patients, including those facing financial hardships and obstacles hindering their access to care.

This national effort is sponsored by National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF), a Washington, DC based organization that works to bring a patient voice to the forefront of health policy discussions, and to help patients from all backgrounds receive the appropriate care when diagnosed with an illness. NPAF and its nationwide network of volunteers address such issues as access to clinical trials and cancer screenings; patient concerns related to Health Information Technology; and expansion of State Medicaid programs to cover those that are uninsured when diagnosed with cancer.

Santee, Tennessee State Policy Liaison for NPAF. "His ongoing commitment to the health of all Tennesseans serves as an example for other states."

In addition to Governor Bredesen, NPAF's efforts are being supported by Secretary of State Riley Darnell, Commissioner Susan R. Cooper, MSN, RN of the Tennessee Department of Health, a
