JuiceWell, (https://shopjuicewell.com/) a juice and health bar in Houston, Texas, is pleased to help customers achieve success with their juice cleanse by offering a free in-store nutritionist consultation.

“Juice cleanse is the perfect way to reboot your taste buds, which helps you change to healthier eating habits!” says spokesperson Wen Qin. “Now you can visit our store for a free nutritionist consultation. Support during any healthy life change is important. With our consultation, you’ll benefit from our years of experience. Not only will we personalize the best plan for your needs, we’ll discuss the outcome you can expect, help you manage expectations, alert you to any mild side effects and ensure you have all the tools you need for a successful juice cleanse.”

Qin cites juicing as a great way to give your body a break from excess caffeine, refined sugars, processed carbs, sweetened beverages and fast food, and notes that most people find it easier to continue on with healthy eating habits after refreshing their body with a nutrient-dense cleanse.

All of the juices in the cleanse program are created by cold-press extraction to ensure the retention of nutrients and vitamins. Using heat to process juice destroys much of its benefits, which is why JuiceWell only uses cold-press methods.

Lafayette, CA Dental Implant Specialist, Dr. Andrew Ferrier, Speaks at Full Arch Business Symposium

Dr. Andrew Ferrier, Prosthodontist and Dental Implant Specialist at East Bay Healthy Smiles in Lafayette, CA

Lafayette, CA Prosthodontist, Dr. Andrew Ferrier, Presents at the Full Arch Business Symposium in Boston, MA

My goal for this seminar is that every dentist leaves with the ability to perform full arch immediate load cases at a high level.

Renowned prosthodontist and dental implant specialist from Lafayette, CA, Dr. Andrew Ferrier will present at the upcoming Full Arch Business Symposium held by BioHorizons® and Progressive Dental. The program is designed for dentists that are new to full arch immediate load dental implant treatments. This two-day course provides attendees with an A to Z look at this premium tooth replacement process, starting with the patient and ending with the treatment.

The Full Arch Business Symposium will be held on October 18-19, 2019 at Aloft Boston Seaport District in Boston, MA. The goal of the symposium will be to improve business strategies and clinical techniques, including increasing case acceptance, achieving exceptional treatment results and tips to streamline treatment. Presenters and leaders of the event include Dr. Ferrier, Dr. Arshiya Sharafi and Bart Knellinger of Progressive Dental. The two-day event, which includes a live surgery, educates clinicians on every element of a full arch dental implant treatment, including:

  • Recognizing eligible patients and properly diagnosing their condition
  • Performing the surgical steps
  • An introduction to the TeethXpress® method of tooth replacement
  • Minimizing chair time
  • Creating custom marketing strategies

This is Dr. Ferrier’s second time presenting at this event. He and Dr. Sharafi teach similar courses throughout the country year-round. “My goal for this seminar is that every dentist leaves with the ability to perform full arch immediate load cases at a high level,” says Dr. Ferrier.

Full arch dental implants are used to restore a patient’s mouth after they have experienced complete tooth loss or have multiple failing teeth. Dental implants are placed into the jawbone to mimic the function of tooth roots, and a full arch prosthesis of new teeth is attached over top. Once the treatment is complete, patients can enjoy full function of their mouth again and have a smile they can feel confident to show off.

Dr. Ferrier has vast experience with full arch dental implants and has completed over 1,000 immediate load cases. This technique allows patients to avoid months of healing time and instead leave his office with aesthetically appealing and functional teeth the same day as their implant surgery. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Ferrier also specializes in the restorative aspect of the procedure, creating natural-looking full arch bridges for patients. His practice, East Bay Healthy Smiles, offers patients comprehensive dental care, including general dentistry, cosmetic treatments and dental implants. He is an avid instructor and works closely with BioHorizons to educate fellow dentists on full arch immediate load dental implants.

Workers’ Compensation and Liability TPA Alternative Service Concepts Named a 2019 Best Places to Work in Insurance

“Every employee in our company deserves credit”

Alternative Service Concepts, LLC (ASC), a national workers’ compensation and property and casualty claims third-party administrator (TPA), recently announced it was named to the 2019 Best Places to Work in Insurance list. This award program is a joint effort between Business Insurance and Best Companies Group (BCG) that serves to identify and recognize the best employers for outstanding workplace performance in the insurance industry each year, as surveyed by employees.

ASC’s quest to become a customer-centric company aligns with its mission statement to take care of its employees. By taking care of its employees, ASC’s employees can then take care its customers. A result of continually fulfilling a commitment to employee support through engagement and overall satisfaction has helped award ASC this honorable distinction for the sixth consecutive year.

“Every employee in our company deserves credit for being named as a Best Places to Work in Insurance.

Our team takes pride in servicing their clients, and I couldn’t be prouder to be associated with some of the most dedicated professionals in the industry.”

ASC believes that a great company culture, plus satisfied employees, equals the best outcomes for all.

METHODOLOGY: For a company to make the Best Places to Work in Insurance list, each company is first broken down by category and size for ranking purposes. Each company must then demonstrate that it meets or exceeds a minimum standard of excellence in a variety of employment-related metrics that are measured against other employers in this industry, as well as other companies nationwide. This information is drawn from a two-part survey conducted by all participating companies. One part of the survey evaluates, in confidentiality, employees’ workplace experience and company culture, and the other gathers information on the employer’s benefits, policies, practices, and other information.

Alternative Service Concepts (ASC), a six-consecutive-year winner of Best Places to Work in Insurance is an integrity-based company delivering workers’ compensation, and P&C claims management expertise and customized solutions to their partners.

As Pharma Reaches for Precision Medicine, Instrument Makers Follow

SDi Logo

A new report from Strategic Directions International (SDi) says that instrument makers are adjusting to client demands for precision medicine products. The report, Lab Instrumentation Markets for Pharmaceuticals, Biopharmaceuticals, & CROs, says that with demand exceeding $19 billion in 2018, the pharma/bio sector is the largest source of demand for laboratory instrumentation.

With the rise of precision medicine, medical treatment is tailored to the individual characteristics of the patient and the disease, which has been made possible by the clinical commercialization of advanced analytical instrumentation, such as sequencing. As the market for precision treatments rapidly expands, companies in the pharma/bio space have adapted by investigating and developing highly targeted therapeutics. This has also led to a shift in the types of therapeutics being developed, as biotherapeutics, which are derived from molecules with a biological basis (i.e., recombinant DNA and antibodies), are able to target disease with much higher specificity than small molecule drugs.

The nature of biotherapeutics and their role in precision medicine is fundamentally changing the model of drug development and marketing. Because biotherapeutics are so highly targeted to specific disease and patient types, the patient pool for each drug is much smaller, compared to the old pharmaceutical model of developing “blockbuster drugs” that could treat large portions of the population. This has led to development pipelines involving a greater number of drugs, and an overall proliferation in the number of laboratories in the pharma/bio space. However, because resources are spread across the development of more therapeutics, the R&D infrastructures for individual labs are growing leaner.

Mettler Toledo, Qiagen, Millipore Sigma, PerkinElmer, Bio-Rad, Shimadzu, and Waters are among the companies in this market. These firms and others are covered in the report.

The sector represents 30% of the overall market for laboratory and life science instrumentation.

SDi’s newly published report, titled Lab Instrumentation Markets for Pharmaceuticals, Biopharmaceuticals, & CROs, is an in-depth analysis of how these trends and challenges are shaping the demand for analytical instrumentation and lab equipment in the pharma/bio space. Trends in pharma/bio development involving 64 technologies in 10 categories are examined through historic market growth and forecasts for demand over the next five years, while end-user perspectives gained through a survey completed by 120 pharma/bio researchers provide further insights into development pipelines, laboratory budget, and challenges being faced in therapeutics development.

About Strategic Directions International

Strategic Directions International (SDi), part of Science and Medicine Group, is the leading business intelligence firm in the highly specialized field of analytical and life science instruments. Its client list includes virtually every major analytical instrumentation company in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Founded in 1981, the Los Angeles-based company has published hundreds of market reports and provided proprietary consulting services for a multitude of clients.

Offering a variety of industrial cable jacket types, the RJ45/RJ45 Ethernet portfolio from Balluff delivers increased durability for connectivity in manufacturing environments.

Balluff offers three main cable jackets:

Susan and Brian Graveno Bring Caring Transitions to Lehigh Valley


Susan and Brian Graveno

Brian and I have both been impacted by the kinds of situations our clients are facing and, because of this experience, we understand what it takes to get through those kinds of transitions. We know it is a stressful and difficult process, both for the senior and for the family. – Susan Graveno

Susan and Brian Graveno are pleased to announce the launch of their new senior- and family-focused business, Caring Transitions of Lehigh Valley.

Caring Transitions’ specially-trained professionals handle decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions of Lehigh Valley serves Allentown, Whitehall, Orefield, Macungie, Emmaus, Quakertown, Coopersburg, Center Valley and the surrounding areas.

“Brian and I have both been impacted by the kinds of situations our clients are facing and, because of this experience, we understand what it takes to get through those kinds of transitions. We know it is a stressful and difficult process, both for the senior and for the family. We are focused on providing high-quality services that help our clients get through those transitions as quickly and smoothly as possible. Our team will do whatever we can to help your family,” Susan said.

Brian is an only child and, when his mother passed away, he and Susan sorted through a lifetime of memories to clear her estate. Susan’s parents lived in an independent living community and, at the same time her father needed hospice and skilled care, her mother needed to be moved into assisted living. Those experiences led them to Caring Transitions and, after Susan’s father died, they made the decision to open their own local franchise.

“My father, Robert Zentz, was the President/CEO of Fellowship Community for more than 22 years. When he passed, I found myself thinking about the joy he got from working with seniors and the impact he made on so many people in our community. I wanted to make that kind of impact. That inspired us make the decision to bring Caring Transitions to this community,” Susan said. “We’re looking forward to providing a much-needed service in this area through a company that’s built on compassion and care.”

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for managing the many aspects of a senior move or assisting with the process of downsizing to provide a safer living situation, as well as for busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has moved into assisted care or passed. All of Caring Transitions’ services are customizable, so clients choose the solution that best fits their needs.

Susan and Brian are long-time Lehigh Valley residents who have been married for more than 30 years and have three adult children – Evan, Molly and Emily – who will also be involved in the family business. Susan has spent the last 30 years in healthcare sales and marketing. Brian has a background in technology sales and sales management. Throughout their professional careers, they always wanted to have a positive impact on others and their community.

Caring Transitions of Lehigh Valley is bonded, insured and their W2 employees have been background checked. For additional information call (610)904-8093, email SGraveno@CaringTransitions.com or visit http://www.CaringTransitionsofLehighValley.com.
