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."

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.

He also provided policy analysis and support on Capitol Hill for the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, in the office of former Senator Adlai Stevenson (D-IL) and for the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities. "Grayson's international activities will serve our Foundation's mission well as NPAF works with our international colleagues to address health care research access issues."

"I look forward to applying my experience in developing and advancing progressive healthcare policies toward new opportunities with the National Patient Advocate Foundation," said Fowler. "The provision of quality healthcare for all Americans is one of the most critical challenges facing our nation in the coming year and beyond, and I am thankful to be working with such an esteemed organization working on the front lines to better this access to care."

A native of North Carolina, Fowler holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Foreign Service from Georgetown University.
