Date:4/24/2008

CHICAGO, April 24 /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, April 28, at 6:00 PM on Channel 21.

Monday's program will feature Laura Leon, Associate Director, Illinois Maternal and Child Health Coalition to discuss how to access low cost and free services available to uninsured infants, children, mothers and families. Cover the Insured Week, organized by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, advocates on behalf of the 45 million uninsured Americans, including 9 million uninsured kids.

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 dearth 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.
