New Point-of-Care Television Network Responds to President Obama's Call for Public Health Education

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) - The Council of Economic Advisors has identified the lack of informed healthcare consumers as one of the 7 key factors that contribute to the healthcare crisis in the United States. According to, chronic, manageable conditions account for 75% of national healthcare expenses, yet only 4 cents of every dollar goes towards educating the public on preventative healthcare measures. America's Minority Health Network (AMHN) is an innovative solution to this problem with the potential to improve the lives of countless minority patients across the nation. The network presents doctors with a unique, cost-effective way to inform their patients about a variety of preventable conditions when they are most receptive: while they are waiting for their exam. AMHN provides the opportunity to turn 30 minutes in the waiting room into a positive experience.
