Washington County Republicans Meeting 6/09: Twila Brase on Health Care

2012 May 10

GUEST SPEAKER: Twila Brase – Citizen’s Council on Health Care

Twila Brase is president and co-founder of the Citizens’ Council on Health Care (CCHC), a freedom-focused, patient-centered national health care organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota.

In August 2009, Modern Healthcare magazine named her as #75 on the “100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare” list. In May 2010, the Star Tribune profiled her on the front page: “Twila Brase: Health care power or health care pain?” In 2000, the Minnesota Physician magazine selected her as one of “Minnesota’s 100 Most Influential Health Care Leaders.” Ms. Brase provides daily radio commentary through the “Health Freedom Minute” (AM1280 – The Patriot), provides testimony at the legislature, meets with members of Congress, and speaks around the country.

The Council’s efforts have stopped government-issued treatment directives, led to a veto of a “Baby DNA Warehouse” bill, added informed consent requirements for access to patient data, defeated a
proposed Health Insurance Exchange, defeated an attempt to repeal genetic privacy and informed consent rights regarding newborn DNA, and led to lawsuits in Minnesota and Texas against the
illegal storage, use, and dissemination of newborn DNA.
