CHICAGO, Nov. 6 /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, November 10, 2008 at 6:00 PM on Channel 21.

Monday's program will feature a frank discussion with Joy Loverde, a nationally known expert on successful aging and eldercare issues and the author of The Complete Eldercare Planner. Ms. Loverde will discuss with viewers and their families how they can partner with health care professionals to optimize safe, high quality care for their aging parents, how to communicate effectively, find low-cost resources and plan for the future.

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 informed and therefore, better health care consumers," noted President and Founder, Lenore Janecek.

Viewers who wish to join discussions are welcome to 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 and executive producer of this groundbreaking program.
