Grayson Fowler to Join NPAF's National Legislative Team, Response to Issues Impacting Patients' Access to Healthcare

WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF) -- a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the mission of creating avenues of improved patient access to healthcare through public policy reform at the state and federal levels -- announced today the appointment of Grayson Fowler to Vice President of Federal Legislative Affairs. Fowler will be based in NPAF's Washington, D.C. office starting December first 2008. His duties will include tracking federal legislation, initiatives affecting patients: their access to healthcare.

"We are pleased to welcome Grayson to our federal government affairs team at NPAF, and we look forward to working closely with him to expand our legislative monitoring and response capabilities in effectively advocating on behalf of patients who are facing challenges accessing healthcare," said Nancy Davenport-Ennis, Founder and CEO of NPAF. "With his valuable background as a veteran non-profit healthcare leader, experienced policy analyst and government relations strategist, we are fortunate to have Grayson on board."

With more than 30 years of experience in the state, national and international legislative arenas - including most recently spending nine years as Director of Federal Relations for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) - Fowler is poised to bring new leadership to NPAF's federal legislative initiatives. While with CTFK, Fowler coordinated successful battles in the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of the public health community, most notably, the passage of 2008 legislation giving the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authority over tobacco products and the enactment of legislation in 2000 continuing funding for the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against the tobacco industry.
