SOUTH BEND, Ind. and BOSTON, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton, Former Secretary of State and Former U.S. Senator from New York, will deliver a keynote address at Press Ganey Associates' 2013 National Client Conference in November. Press Ganey, the leading patient experience improvement firm, hosts the annual conference of nearly 2,000 health care professionals from across the continuum of care as a forum to discuss innovations in improving the patient experience.
"Secretary Clinton has a remarkable track record of leadership, vision and advocacy," said Patrick T. Ryan, CEO of Press Ganey. "For decades she has been a strong advocate for quality, affordable health care. We are honored to host Secretary Clinton as we bring together leaders from across the industry to celebrate the voice of the patient as a key component in improving health care."
Clinton served as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her "smart power" approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century. She played a central role in restoring America's standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East.
Earlier, as First Lady and Senator from New York, she traveled to more than 80 countries as a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero. In her historic campaign for President, Clinton won 18 million votes.
