Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom: What Every Patient Should Know About Privacy

CCHF Leader Twila Brase Shares Info about HIPAA, Baby DNA, Coerced Consent, Hippocratic Oath and More at D.C. Gathering  

ST. PAUL, Minn.Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) president and co-founder Twila Brase was a featured speaker yesterday at the National Physicians Council for Healthcare Policy meeting in Washington, D.C., asking the important and timely question, “Patient Privacy: Where Art Thou?”

At the meeting, Brase shared information on timely privacy issues every American should know:

Brase also offered action steps to restore privacy and protect from government and corporate control, including:
