Mediaplanet Teams Up with AHA, ADA, and Know Diabetes By Heart Ambassador Dr. Joshua Joseph To Help Those Living With Diabetes


News Image

As the nation begins to recover from COVID-19, the estimated 34.2 million Americans living with diabetes remain particularly vulnerable.

As the nation begins to recover from COVID-19, the estimated 34.2 million Americans living with diabetes remain particularly vulnerable. Perhaps even more concerning is the approximate 88 million Americans who have prediabetes and the staggering 84 percent of them who do not know it. In 2021, we must educate and advocate for this life-threatening disease, which is why Mediaplanet has teamed up with industry to create its most comprehensive diabetes campaign yet.

Distributed in today’s edition of USA TODAY in various markets and online through Mediaplanet’s health content hub, “Living With Diabetes” will serve as the leading wellness guide for the diabetic community, as well as an educational resource to readers nationwide.

With diabetes and prediabetes growing steadily within the United States, this campaign aims to raise awareness for easier management for both people living with diabetes, and their healthcare providers and caregivers. It will also highlight the newest innovations in treatment and management technology, allowing patients to live life to the fullest while carefully managing their diabetes.

The campaign takes a newfound focus on the relationship between wound care, glucose monitoring, and nutrition, an often-overlooked intersection of essential care that demands attention. This call to action for diabetics to take charge of their health is cultivated by well-respected associations, such as the ADA, NKF, DRIF, AHA and many more.

At the core of the campaign is the joint initiative co-led by the ADA and AHA, Know Diabetes By Heart, who’s key contributions brought on board our esteemed cover star Dr. Joshua J. Joseph an endocrinologist specializing in diabetes and metabolism at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. In an exclusive interview, Dr. Joseph addresses the ethnic disparities seen in diabetes, and how we can overcome racial, social, and economic barriers to better health.

We invite you to explore the campaign in USA TODAY and online at http://www.futureofpersonalhealth.com/campaign/diabetes, and join us in empowering people living with diabetes. Diabetes doesn’t stop for COVID, and neither can we!

Union Cannabis Group Expands Legal Team as it Expands Across the Country


Zach Heller Joins Union Cannabis Group as General Counsel

“UCG is at the pinnacle of its field when it comes to creating premium quality cannabis products,” Heller said.

Union Cannabis Group (UCG Inc.; UCG), a leading product manufacturing and brand licensing company in the recreational cannabis industry, expanded its legal team this week with the addition of attorney Zach Heller as General Counsel.

With a J.D. from New England Law | Boston and an LL.M. from N.Y.U. School of Law, Heller comes from an extensive background in commercial litigation in the consumer product, medical device and pharmaceutical industries. He views the current time as being an inflection point for cannabis in the United States and is excited to turn his legal skills to the cannabis industry.

“UCG is at the pinnacle of its field when it comes to creating premium quality cannabis products,” he said. “I foresee UCG continuing to lead the field when it comes to providing turnkey solutions for cannabis companies looking to navigate the thorny application process and then helping them design, specify and build out their facilities in a best-of-class way.”

Heller will work closely with UCG’s Chief Legal Officer, Eli Korer, and will play an important role in supporting the commercial side of the business while focusing on minimizing risk. “Zach’s experience and capability is not only going to allow UCG to identify, minimize and manage legal and business risk exposure in an inherently risky industry, but also support UCG’s deal flow. With Zach’s support on legal, regulatory, compliance and project management components of UCG’s projects, UCG’s deals are bound to start racking up,” said Korer.

UCG also owns and operates the award-winning brand Dabstract, a connoisseur recreational brand that is available throughout the state of Washington and is currently expanding to four additional states.

“Zach will be a vital member who will assist UCG in expanding its footprint on both the licensing and facility partnership side of the business,” said Sushanta Parikh, UCG’s Chief Executive Officer. “It is rare to find someone with the background he has in high-stakes litigation who also has such a strong sense of business contractual arrangements, which can be difficult in the cannabis industry at this time. And bonus – he’s an overall great guy.”

Heller likened the cannabis industry and its various legal regimes to a puzzle, which he said he loves. “As more and more jurisdictions are legalizing and commercializing recreational cannabis use, I could not be more excited to advise and guide UCG through the regulatory challenges presented in each new market,” he said.

About UCG:

Union Cannabis Group (UCG Inc.; UCG) is a cannabis brand and product company that also offers design and installation services for cannabis extraction facilities, manufacturing process training, product formulation, and brand licensing. UCG serves clients in multiple states, with clients including Washington’s leading cannabis producer, where UCG also designed and currently operates the largest processing facility in the State. Dabstract, a premier award-winning brand of recreational cannabis extracts, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of UCG.

AIHM Fellowship in Integrative Health and Medicine Accepting Healthcare Practitioner Applicants and Awarding Scholarships for Oct 2021 Session


News Image

“We encourage healthcare practitioners from a broad range of professions into our program as we know that we can improve healthcare through collaboration and sharing perspectives amongst all providers,” said Mimi Guarneri, MD, FACC, ABOIM, Founding AIHM President.

The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM) Interprofessional Fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine, a 1000-hour hybrid program for clinicians who aim to become leaders in integrative health and medicine, has expanded its program and is accepting applications for October 2021. Rooted in evidence-based research, the Fellowship was launched in 2016 and blends online learning with clinical immersion experience. Scholarships are available on a limited first come first serve basis in these areas as well as others: licensed providers working with the underserved; allied healthcare professionals; and licensed providers from and/or working with BIPOC communities.

“We encourage healthcare practitioners from a broad range of professions into our program as we know that we can improve healthcare through collaboration and sharing perspectives amongst all providers,” said Mimi Guarneri, MD, FACC, ABOIM, Founding AIHM President.

“We provide highly effective tools that can be integrated in their own practice to ultimately have a ripple effect of health and wellness through communities and cities,” she added.

Fellows are licensed clinicians or licensed healthcare providers most of whom have their MD or DO or a masters degree. Participants typically become Fellows for continuing education and a meaningful connection to a deeper mission, often helping to address provider burnout and a desire to broaden their sense of purpose.

Nearly 200 graduates of the Fellowship apply their integrative approach to health and medicine in their work nationwide as doctors, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors and naturopaths among other professions. The online learning platform provides flexibility to take courses when convenient for the applicant, such as between seeing patients or in the evenings. Immersive experiences include virtual observation and interaction with leaders in Integrative Medicine practicing in a variety of clinical settings. This year’s online format allows for even more flexibility for working adult learners and a reduced environmental impact.

The curriculum includes a focus on integrative disease management, clinical immersion and self study, nutrition, botanicals and supplements, environmental and global health and more with courses building on the learning foundation in a progressive manner. Three retreats focus on the community and connection and reinforces the curriculum through experiential sessions in the beginning, middle and end of the program. One clinical immersion experience offers virtual input from expert faculty on actual patient case studies to help address patient needs.

More affordable than similar Fellowship programs in Integrative Health and Medicine, AIHM’s Fellowship tuition is approximately $26,000. They offer equitable pricing through scholarships, institutional support, and match programs. Approximately fifty percent of Fellows are eligible for scholarships, with over $1 million awarded to date. Scholarships are based on financial need, work embedded within underserved communities, the cost of living in the state where the applicant lives as well as other factors.

The AIHM Fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine was unanimously approved by the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) committee in 2015. This means that MDs and DOs who successfully complete the Fellowship have satisfied ABOIM Eligibility Requirement 7(1) and are eligible to sit for the ABOIM exam. In March 2021, the AIHM Fellowship was also re-recognized by the Academic Consortium for Integrative Health & Medicine.

The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM) is a global interprofessional integrative health association working to transform health care – body, mind, spirit, community and planet. AIHM has been the leading professional organization for the holistic and integrative community since its formation in 1978. With the recent merger with the Academic Collaborative of Integrative Health (ACIH), the organization has combined forces with the most important pioneers of the integrative health movement for maximum impact. Together, they are creating health and wellness on a global scale through education, collaboration, and building a global movement.

Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, President of Women’s Excellence, Launches the Endometriosis Treatment Center of America


News Image

Endometriosis is a debilitating disease in women causing painful periods, painful sexual intercourse, chronic pelvic pain, and infertility. Endometriosis is often times difficult to diagnose and complicated to treat due to the extensive nature of the disease and the inconsistencies in symptoms among patients. The new Endometriosis Treatment Center of America is founded on principles of efficient care, outstanding customer service, and expert treatment options for women.

Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, President of Women’s Excellence recognized the need for a dedicated specialty center focusing on all facets of endometriosis. According to Dr. Zaidan, “The treatment of endometriosis is not a one-size-fits-all approach. In most cases, patients require a multi-modal plan of care harnessing medicinal, surgical, and natural treatments to reduce symptoms. Since endometriosis is a chronic disease, most patients require frequent visits and maintenance protocols after surgery. We have also learned over the years that women with endometriosis are experts themselves. These patient research and understand the disease and desire care from providers with equivalent knowledge, attention for detail, and eagerness to spread awareness about the disease. Our new center offers women a dedicated Team of providers and support staff who fully understand endometriosis and aim to continually evolve as treatment protocols advance.”

In supporting their mission to provide expert treatments to women, Dr. Zaidan has recently achieved the most amount of robotic excision of endometriosis surgeries in the country utilizing the da Vinci Robotic system.

“Excision of Endometriosis is the gold standard of care for women because it decreases the amount and time for any disease recurrence and eliminates a significant amount of pelvic pain that our patients experience,” says Zaidan.

Excision refers to the removal of lesions of endometriosis, not leaving any damaged tissue behind. Excision helps maintain healthy tissue in the surrounding organs. Once the damaged tissue is removed, the specimens are sent to pathology to rule out cancer and determine the extent of the disease.

According to Dr. Zaidan, there’s more to healthcare than just treating patients. “When we treat a patient for endometriosis, we see them again and again over a period of months. We really get to know our patients and they get to know us. We help eliminate their pain so they can return to a normal lifestyle, doing the things they love. For many patients, we help them become pregnant after years of infertility. We even help patients remain active in the workforce, by eradicating their symptoms that inhibited them at work. We develop a caring, personal relationship with each and every one. The experience is rewarding to both the provider and patient, and we are humbled and gracious to be a part of these patient’s journey,” concluded Zaidan.

The first office for The Endometriosis Treatment Center of America (ETCA) is now opened in Lake Orion, Michigan at 1430 S Lapeer Rd, Lake Orion, MI 48362. In the coming months, ETCA will open offices in Birmingham and Madison Heights, with plans to begin expanding further throughout the state by December.

New Study Shows CGMs, Paired with Mobile Health App, Can Significantly Improve Glucose Regulation


News Image

The Sugar Challenge Study shows that brief use of CGM along with food and activity insights are powerful tools for improving glucose homeostasis across a diverse population, including those with Type 2 diabetes.

January AI (the first precision health company that accurately predicts users’ blood sugar response to over 16 million foods in its proprietary atlas) today announces that it is a proud partner in Mediaplanet’s “Living with Diabetes” campaign, alongside organizations including the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, American Heart Association, JDRF, and National Kidney Foundation.

“Half of the adult U.S. population, some 122 million people, have diabetes or prediabetes,” notes January AI founder and CEO Noosheen Hashemi. “With AI, we have an unprecedented opportunity to help them figure out what in their daily habits is working and what needs tweaking. Predicting their blood sugar response empowers them to make smarter choices, like what foods to avoid or hack, how much of a food to enjoy guilt-free, how much and when to exercise, and so much more. We’re only scratching the surface.”

The print component of “Living With Diabetes” was published in today’s edition of USA TODAY in select markets, and the digital version can be found online at futureofpersonalhealth.com/campaign/diabetes.

January AI also announces today that its scientific study “Improvement in glucose regulation using a digital tracker and continuous glucose monitoring in healthy adults and those with Type 2 Diabetes” has been published in Diabetes Therapy. Authored by Michael Snyder and colleagues, the study shows that the 10-day use of a CGM as a part of multimodal data collection, with synthesis and participant feedback provided by a mobile health app, can significantly reduce hyperglycemia in non-insulin-treated individuals, including those with early stages of glucose dysregulation.

“A CGM plus our AI significantly improves glucose control in 10 days — that’s pretty remarkable,” says Michael Snyder, Ph.D., January AI’s co-founder, and director of genomics and personalized medicine at Stanford University. “Diabetes is a health problem greater than COVID, and we need advanced technologies like these to help get this endemic under control and improve people’s lives.”

Experts estimate that worldwide insulin use will increase 20 percent by the year 2030. The insulin intensive market is 3.5 million people today, with an additional 30 million people with Type 2 diabetes who could benefit from using a CGM. January AI is the only company predicting glycemic response for healthy, prediabetes, and Type 2 diabetes populations. January AI’s unique approach uses artificial intelligence to help users decide what to eat, including predictions about how they might react to different foods before they even eat them.

Setting January AI apart from other self-care programs is its multi-omic approach to synthesizing wearable, food, and microbiome data to make recommendations personalized to each individual’s physiology. Its clinically studied Season of Me program takes users on an engaging journey of self discovery and positive behavior change to improve metabolic health

and stave off chronic disease.

Drawing from its proprietary atlas of more than 16 million foods, complete with glycemic index and glycemic load data, January AI is the only metabolic health program that helps you make decisions about what to eat, including predictions on how you might react to different foods before you eat them. It helps you manage food intake commensurate with activity levels, learn how to safely and easily increase your fasting window, and increase your fiber intake, which has been shown to moderate glucose spikes.

About January AI

Founded by tech veteran Noosheen Hashemi, and Chairman of Genetics and Director of Genomics and Personalized Medicine at Stanford University, Dr. Michael Snyder, January AI is the first precision health company that combines heart rate and continuous glucose monitors, sleep and activity tracking, and seamless meal logging, including inferred calorie and fiber consumption drawing from a proprietary atlas of 16 million foods, to give you a complete picture of your metabolic health and nudge you towards better habits in just 30 days—from predicting which foods you should eat and avoid, to when a brisk walk or overnight fast can bring your blood sugar back into a healthy range.

New, Non-Invasive Treatment for Urinary Leakage and Sexual Dysfunction Now Available at Women’s Excellence


News Image

With incontinence affecting over 19 million women in the US, Women’s Excellence is excited to introduce a breakthrough technology called EMSELLA. EMSELLA is a chair that treats pelvic floor relaxation by stimulating the entire pelvic floor region and musculature, rehabilitating weak pelvic muscles, and restoring neuromuscular control. This treatment is revolutionizing the women’s intimate health and wellness category by effectively treating urinary and fecal incontinence and even improving sexual wellness for women. The technology provides women with an easy, effective, and completely non-invasive treatment option, empowering them to address an often-private health issue that can dramatically impact their quality of life.

Pelvic floor relaxation is a weakening of the muscle of the pelvic floor. If they are not as strong, they do not work as well. This means that women cannot always control when they urinate, they cannot feel as much during intercourse, the pelvic organs can “drop”, and bowel habits become unpredictable in some cases. Pelvic floor relaxation can be referred to as prolapse, pelvic floor dysfunction, and pelvic floor weakness. No matter what you call it, these muscles are not doing their job!

Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, President of Women’s Excellence takes comprehensive care seriously. “Until now, there has not been an easy and effective, non-invasive solution for women to help strengthen their pelvic floor. At Women’s Excellence, we are proud to offer comprehensive care to our patients, and by adding the EMSELLA chair to our treatment offerings, we do just that!” says Zaidan. “Our goal is to exceed the wants and needs of the women in our community. In some cases, patients do not desire the use of medication or even surgery to help their problem. The EMSELLA chair helps strengthen the pelvic muscles – all while the patient remains fully clothed!”

Harnessing the power of HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology, EMSELLA stimulates the entire pelvic floor at once—with a single session providing thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, comparable to over 11,000 Kegels. Supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions are extremely important in muscle re-education for patients.

A recent clinical study demonstrated that 100% of patients had better awareness of pelvic floor muscles because of treatment, with 95% of patients treated reported satisfaction and significant improvement in their quality of life following six treatments with EMSELLA.

“Given how common these problems are for women, it always surprises me that women keep it to themselves as many of their friends and colleagues are suffering as well,” shared Dr. Zaidan. “By the time they come to me, they’re really at loss and are excited to learn about the EMSELLA chair. The completely non-invasive nature of the treatment allows it to be approachable, making it easy for women to treat this issue and stop suffering in silence.”

For optimal results, Women’s Excellence recommends a series of six, twice–weekly, 28 minute treatments.

Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique Among Select Locations Chosen to Perform Qwo™ Injectable for Cellulite


Qwo™ Injectable for Cellulite

Mirror Beauty Boutique announced today that they are now one of ten locations in Houston exclusively selected to administer Qwo™

Mirror Beauty Boutique announced today that they are now one of ten locations in Houston exclusively selected to administer Qwo™, the only FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in women’s buttocks. Dr. Vitenas, M.D., F.A. C. S., who earlier this year was given the distinction of a Castle Connolly Top Doctor for 2021, will be overseeing the procedure and is excited about its potential.

With the new Qwo™ injectable treatment, women can transform from an “orange peel” dimpled skin appearance to having smooth visible results over the course of 10 weeks and 3 different treatments given 21 days apart. Qwo™ is believed to work in a manner similar to Botox Cosmetic. When the non-surgical treatment is administered, fibrous bands that were previously constricted and causing the dimpled appearance are released, allowing for the redistribution of the fat cells in the area. This also is thought to stimulate new collagen growth, helping to improve the skin’s appearance over time.

“At Mirror Beauty Boutique, we are always seeking the latest and most effective treatments for our patients,” said Dr. Vitenas. “To be one of the very few practices to administer Qwo™, the only FDA-approved option to treat cellulite in women’s buttocks, is an honor and a privilege we take seriously. The treatments we administer often have a profound effect on our patients’ confidence and quality of life and we are confident that the new Qwo™ injectable treatment will yield many happy patients who are prepping for their summer vacations, beach days, honeymoons, and more.”

The Qwo™ injections are made subcutaneously into the dimpled areas on each side of the buttocks. Patients who schedule a treatment can anticipate the appointment being 10-15 minutes long, where they can get up to a dozen injections on each side of the buttocks. While considered a safe treatment, Qwo™ patients can expect to experience some common side effects including red or discolored bruised skin, sensitive skin or skin that feels firm when touched, and itchiness, swelling, or a warm feeling in the area.

To help patients learn more about the treatment and see the procedure in action, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique has included a short video of a real patient session on their website at http://www.mirrormirrorhouston.com/qwo-cellulite-treatment.

Speaking on the safety of the treatment, Dr. Vitenas commented, “What is wonderful is that Qwo™ has been studied at length, in fact, more so than any cellulite treatment of its kind with nearly 2000 women participating in studies before the FDA approval. It is incredibly safe and very effective for women looking to achieve a smooth appearance in the buttocks area.”

To learn more about the Qwo™ treatment and to schedule a free consultation at Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, call (281) 810-9083 or visit the website at http://www.mirrormirrorhouston.com.
