ZIPPZ CBD Taps Renowned Medical Advisors, Dr June Chin, and Dr Jessica Knox

ZIPPZ

ZIPPZ, the first-of-its-kind personalized natural CBD wellness company, has announced the addition of two renowned cannabis medical advisors to the brand: Dr. June Chin and Dr. Jessica Knox, both cannabinoid and preventive medicine physicians. As cannabis becomes more widely consumed with 22.2 million users each month, the U.S. legal market is anticipated to hit $43 billion by 2025. Cue in the rapidly growing market of cannabis-based products with minimal physician involvement, and you have a nation of consumers seeking quality medicinal remedies. Disrupting the sleep and stress market, ZIPPZ provides an alternative to OTC and Rx therapies with innovative CBD and plant-based solutions. Using the natural pharmacology-based approach from their practices, Dr. Chin, and Dr. Knox will apply their knowledge to help ZIPPZ elevate cannabis as a holistic medical alternative. “ZIPPZ understands that sleep disruption and increased levels of stress and anxiousness are driven by dramatically different things for different people,” says ZIPPZ CEO, Scott Eagle.”The solution requires a unique and personalized product catered to each individual’s health needs, not a generic one-size-fits-all approach. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Chin and Dr. Knox to help guide our custom solutions and advance our mission as an integrative medical approach.” “As a chronic pain survivor, I have been an advocate for the application of medical cannabis throughout my career”, stated Dr. Chin. “More integrative and holistic approaches to patient care is exactly what we need. I’m honored to work with the ZIPPZ team to advance this important vision while creating affordable and personalized CBD therapies for those who seek relief from stress and pain.” As part of ZIPPZ’s unique approach, the brand leverages each customer’s robust online assessment for a sophisticated understanding of their unique condition, severity, age, gender, and lifestyle. ZIPPZ then personalizes formula recommendations for each individual, offering a “trial sampling” program, in which users finalize the perfect ZIPPZ formula to meet their needs. Dr. Knox stated, “I am particularly drawn to the ZIPPZ personalized consumer assessment, as health needs should be treated for individual requirements. ​​I look forward to applying my experience in refining the cannabinoid system and medical applications to advise ZIPPZ on their vision that each customer receives a unique remedy for their health and wellness needs.” By integrating network pharmacology principles, ZIPPZ has maximized the effectiveness of 35 proven botanicals, including CBD, to formulate products to meet each consumer’s unique needs. ZIPPZ offers hundreds of potential formula combinations, paving the way in providing credible and natural wellness therapies that work. ### ABOUT ZIPPZ: ZIPPZ is a direct-to-consumer, California-based CBD wellness company offering personalized, scientifically-formulated CBD solutions targeting sleep, stress, and anxiousness. Founded by a team of physicians, clinicians, scientists, and technologists, ZIPPZ dismisses the one-size-fits-all approach to CBD therapies. After consumers complete a quick and thorough 3-minute assessment, ZIPPZ uses data science to help match them with personalized solutions. Rooted in nature and activated by science, ZIPPZ combines CBD with 35 carefully selected botanicals to deliver therapies customized to each individual’s needs.

LivLyme Foundation Founder Olivia Goodreau to Discuss Perils of Lyme Disease in Free Webinar Hosted by Industry-Leading Quidel Corporation

Quidel Corporation

Olivia Goodreau, who founded the LivLyme Foundation at 12 years old and has since become a widely respected advocate and national spokeswoman for Lyme disease prevention and treatment, will discuss her “journey with Lyme” and the importance of early testing as part of a webinar to be held Thursday, Aug. 19. The webinar is the latest in an ongoing series sponsored by Quidel, the California-based diagnostic health care manufacturer known for successfully developing rapid diagnostic health solutions. ______________________________________________________________________ Webinar Registration The free online educational program will take place Aug. 19 at noon EDT. Registration is available now at https://education.quidel.com/registration/2580/1/r/LD-1. You may attend the webinar by accessing the same link on or after Aug. 19 at noon EDT. ______________________________________________________________________ Now 16 years old, Goodreau founded the LivLyme Foundation in 2017 to help raise money for individuals who cannot afford their Lyme medication or doctors’ visits and to fund research to find a cure for Lyme and tick-borne diseases. She has since awarded 54 grants to children and adults ages 2-21 along with four grants to top universities to fund tick-borne disease research. Goodreau is also the inventor of TickTracker, the free global app that has over 50,000 users in multiple languages worldwide. TickTracker was selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as the “top tech tool” that is solving global health problems, beating out Oracle and IBM, among others. As part of the webinar, Goodreau will discuss her journey with Lyme, including when she became ill, the number of physicians she visited, how she was diagnosed and her passion for the importance of early testing. She will also discuss her work on the “public stage,” having presented TickTracker at the White House and having met with countless members of Congress, celebrities, scientists and governmental agencies to educate and spread awareness about tick-borne diseases. Goodreau’s webinar presentation is particularly relevant today as Lyme disease is on the rise to record numbers throughout the country and has the potential to affect as many as 476,000 citizens before the year is out. For accurate and fast testing, more and more clinicians are turning to the Sofia® 2 Lyme FIA by Quidel. This revolutionary test provides the patient and physician with indicative results within 15 minutes, as opposed to days, which has historically been the norm (and during which time organisms can spread and become systemic). It can be performed in the privacy of a doctor’s office, local clinic or even by a nurse at a children’s summer camp; and it is the only test that can get results from a simple finger prick of blood. Among those expected to attend the free Aug. 19 webinar are physicians; allied health professionals; health researchers; and representatives of physician offices, laboratories, urgent care centers, patient advocacy associations and others interested in the subject. About Quidel Corporation Quidel Corporation (Nasdaq: QDEL) is a leading manufacturer of diagnostic solutions at the point of care, delivering a continuum of rapid testing technologies that further improve the quality of health care throughout the globe. An innovator for over 40 years in the medical device industry, Quidel pioneered the first FDA-cleared point-of-care test for influenza in 1999 and was the first to market a rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen test in the U.S. Under trusted brand names, Sofia®, Solana®, Lyra®, Triage® and QuickVue®, Quidel’s comprehensive product portfolio includes tests for a wide range of infectious diseases, cardiac and autoimmune biomarkers, as well as a host of products to detect COVID-19. With products made in America, Quidel’s mission is to provide patients with immediate and frequent access to highly accurate, affordable testing for the good of our families, our communities and the world.

Comcast's Internet Essentials Program, Tacoma Mayor, and Local Gaming Personality Marcel Cunningham Partner to Address Digital Divide for Students at Al Davies Boys & Girls Club

Comcast Washington

Comcast today announced grants and technology donations to the Al Davies Club in Tacoma as part of its ongoing commitment to help connect more low-income students and families to the Internet. The announcement was made at an event with former Al Davies Club Member and international gaming influencer Marcel Cunningham, who goes by the name of BasicallyIDoWrk, and the Mayor of Tacoma, Victoria Woodards. In collaboration with Cunningham, Comcast contributed $10,000 and 40 laptop computers to the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound. Sixty students also received free laptop computers to keep along with 12 months of home Internet service for eligible families through Comcast’s Internet Essentials program. The funds and computer equipment will help the club better serve its members and provide additional resources to families in need. Thirty kids attending summer camp at the Al Davies Boys & Girls Club also had the opportunity to play with Cunningham in a fun, interactive video game competition at the event. Afterwards, Cunningham, Mayor Woodards, and Comcast surprised the students by handing out the free laptops and a gift card good for a year of Internet Essentials Internet service. "It is extraordinary to be able to come back and bring resources to the Club I spent so much time at as a kid. Boys & Girls Clubs are special places that help so many kids and families, and I wouldn't be who I am today without the experiences I had at the Al Davies Club,” said Cunningham. “I appreciate the opportunity to partner with Comcast and Mayor Woodards to bring these resources to the Boys & Girls Club, the students, and their families.” “When private companies and organizations like ours can come together it can truly create something special for our community. These funds, access to internet and technology donations will have a tremendous impact on our local Clubs,the members we serve, and their families” said Carrie Holden, President/CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound. “We are grateful to Comcast for its contributions and to our alum Marcel for continuing to stay engaged with the Club and our kids.” “The COVID-19 pandemic has shed light on many of the inequities in our society, including the digital divide. In Tacoma and across the South Puget Sound, we are fortunate to have organizations like our local Boys & Girls Clubs which serve as central meeting places and can help address the issues of access and equity if they have the resources,” said Tacoma’s Mayor Victoria Woodards. “This is why it is exciting to see Comcast and Marcel collaborating with our local Clubs to support youth and their families and fill an important community need by providing crucial technology resources across our region.” As a former member of the Al Davies Boys & Girls Club, Cunningham previously received the Key to the City of Tacoma Award for his work in the local community and support of his childhood club. Cunningham continues to support the club via his foundation TeamWrk, which focuses on challenging youth to reach their full potential by teaching healthy gaming habits, character and team-building skills, and bullying prevention. Cunningham recently became a member of “Team Xfinity”, a collection of streamers, content creators, and gamers who rely on Xfinity Internet to power all their gaming and streaming needs, connecting them with audiences across the world. "We're thrilled to partner with Marcel to help give Boys & Girls Club students and families the resources to access the Internet to participate in online learning," said Carla Carrell, Senior Director of External Affairs, Comcast Washington. "The pandemic put many vulnerable students and families at risk of being left behind, accelerating the need for comprehensive digital equity and Internet adoption programs to support them." Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Comcast’s recent $1 billion commitment over the next 10 years to help further close the digital divide and give even more low-income students and families the tools and resources they need to succeed in a digital world. About Internet Essentials Internet Essentials is Comcast’s signature digital equity initiative and the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. In 10 years, it has helped connect 10 million low-income Americans to broadband Internet at home, most for the very first time. Internet Essentials has a comprehensive design that addresses each of the three major barriers to broadband adoption. This includes: multiple options to access free digital literacy training in print, online, and in person; the option to purchase a heavily subsidized, low-cost Internet-ready computer; and low-cost, high-speed Internet service for $9.95 a month, plus tax. The program is structured as a partnership between Comcast and tens of thousands of school districts, libraries, elected officials, and nonprofit community partners. Comcast has never raised the price of the program.

Genpact and Not Impossible Join Forces, Leveraging Technology to Fight Food Insecurity at Scale

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/0ZgGIMRoOnk No family should have to choose between feeding their children and paying their rent, but that’s the exact choice millions of families are forced to make each day. Efforts to address this problem are time-consuming and difficult, and often come at the expense of personal dignity – from long lines at food pantries, to food stamps at grocery stores. The Not Impossible Foundation has joined forces with digital transformation firm Genpact (NYSE: G) to grow and improve its ability to confront food insecurity using “Technology for the Sake of Humanity.” The program will leverage the best of technology to create real-time transparency and increased connectedness so donors can see the direct impact of their compassionate giving. It’s an approach that could help non-profit and mutual aid efforts in your community understand their human impact and meet their goals. One key technology leveraged by the Not Impossible Foundation to combat hunger is Bento, a community-engagement platform that uses SMS text messaging to connect at-risk populations with convenient, nutritious, pre-paid meals from local restaurants. The process is stigma free for participants because meals are provided through existing online ordering systems. It also supports restaurants, many of which struggled during the pandemic. “We are a country with tremendous resources, yet food insecurity – the constant struggle to find enough to eat – is still a major social problem,” said Mick Ebeling, founder and chief executive officer of Bento and Not Impossible Labs. “The problem isn’t about the lack of food. It’s the lack of connectivity. Technology can connect people who can help to those who need help. Genpact will be instrumental in helping us do that at scale. Their innovative digital transformation has the potential to revolutionize charitable giving, while retaining the human element of social impact.” This first of its kind platform will create insights and transparency into donations that will enable individuals to see where funds go, be alerted in real time of the impact of their generosity on individuals, and create a richer end-to-end experience that fuels philanthropic engagement, retention, and commitment. To do this, Genpact will leverage its deep process and technology expertise, including user experience, machine learning, analytics, and automation. “No family should have to choose between feeding their children and paying their rent, but that’s the exact choice millions of families are forced to make each day,” said Stacy Simpson, chief marketing officer, global leader of corporate responsibility and diversity, equity, and inclusion, Genpact. “Contributing the best of our technology, humanity, and innovation to help eradicate hunger in America speaks directly to Genpact’s purpose: the relentless pursuit of a world that works better for people.” To bring additional awareness to this critical issue, Genpact leveraged its partnership with Envision Virgin Racing to add the Not Impossible Bento logo (NI Labs Bento) to its all-electric race cars during Formula E’s 2021 ABB New York City E-Prix. “Solving some of the world’s seemingly unsolvable problems requires all of us to step up and do something,” added Simpson. “Formula E fans are among the most engaged, passionate, and socially motivated audiences. Securing logo space on Envision Virgin Racing’s car for Not Impossible is about deliberately giving critical exposure to ending hunger, which is both a humanitarian and environmental issue.” For more information on this partnership or to donate, visit www.Genpact.com/NotImpossible. About Genpact: Genpact (NYSE: G) is a global professional services firm that makes business transformation real. Led by our purpose -- the relentless pursuit of a world that works better for people -- we drive digital-led innovation and digitally enabled intelligent operations for our clients. Guided by our experience reinventing and running thousands of processes for hundreds of clients, many of them Global Fortune 500 companies, we drive real-world transformation at scale.

The Foundation strives to help the “many” from Not Impossible Labs motto of “help one, help many.” Through corporate support and personal donations, the Foundation is passionate about scaling solutions and expanding possibilities.
