Tim McGraw Joins Narus Health’s Board of Directors
Tim McGraw recently announced his partnership with Narus Health, a Nashville-based company that is focused on improving the quality of life for people with terminal illnesses.
The "Humble and Kind" singer says learning of the company's patient-focused approach to helping people with serious illnesses struck a chord with him because of his own father's end-of-life struggles. Recently, he has been added to the company's Board of Directors.
"I remember all the decisions my dad had to make along the way, and the support system he needed throughout his journey," he tells Music Row. "When you are facing a serious illness, you need a dedicated team to ride alongside you. People who will listen, provide support and guidance for you and your family, and give you a voice in your healthcare decisions. That’s the kind of care everyone deserves, and it’s why I’m partnering with Narus Health. The opportunity to work with another team of passionate people, dedicated to the same quality of life mission as the Tug McGraw Foundation, combining our efforts, sharing resources and helping others make every moment count."
In the coming months, both McGraw and Narus Health will reveal their shared initiatives. Former Nashville Entrepreneurship Center CEO Michael Burcham, who founded the company in August of last year, says he and McGraw share a passion for making a difference to those suffering with serious illnesses.
"We talked about ways we could give consumers a voice in their healthcare choices, support their families, and provide them the guidance and resources they need to make informed decisions," Burcham explains. "We both knew at that moment; we could combine our teams and our talents to do something meaningful for families all over America."
Tim McGraw will also headline at WE Fest 2016 this August.
