This is a great recognition for Dr. Bonner. Under his leadership, the University has made so much progress, and he’s played a great part in making Gardner-Webb what it is today.”

— Ron Beane, vice chair of the GWU Board of Trustees.

BOILING SPRINGS, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a surprise presentation at Gardner-Webb University on Oct. 19, GWU President Dr. Frank Bonner was awarded The Order of the Long Leaf Pine—North Carolina’s highest civilian honor. Conferred by Gov. Roy Cooper, this prestigious award recognizes exemplary service that has made a significant impact and strengthened the state.

A. Hope Williams, president of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, presented the award at a gathering of the GWU Board of Trustees, senior staff and guests. “It was my great honor as a member of the Governor’s Education Cabinet, and on behalf of the state of North Carolina, to present the Order of the Long Leaf Pine to Gardner-Webb University President, Dr. Frank Bonner, for his outstanding career in higher education, which exemplifies the impact that innovative leadership can have on a university, faculty, and students," Williams said.

“This is a great recognition for Dr. Bonner,” affirmed Ron Beane, vice chair of the GWU Board of Trustees. “Under his leadership, the University has made so much progress, and he’s played a great part in making Gardner-Webb what it is today.”

Bonner, who is retiring in January 2019, has served the University for more than three decades in total and as president for nearly 14 years. The award presentation took him completely by surprise. “I am overwhelmed and more appreciative that I can possibly say," he reflected. “I am deeply grateful for all those who had a role in planning this event and were here to be a part of this special honor.”

He joined Gardner-Webb in 1987 as vice president for Academic Affairs. His role later evolved into vice president for Academic and Student Affairs and then provost and senior vice president. In May, 2005, he was named GWU’s 12th president and took office on July 1. A 1969 graduate of Furman University in Greenville, S.C., with a bachelor’s degree in English, Bonner earned his master’s degree in 1971 from the University of Georgia in Athens and his doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977.

Some highlights of his Gardner-Webb tenure include leading the University’s largest-ever capital campaign raising $46 million, receiving gifts to name the Hunt School of Nursing and Godbold School of Business, starting new doctoral programs in education and nursing, launching a Physician Assistant Studies Program, building the 110,000-square-foot Tucker Student Center, purchasing and renovating the former Crawley Hospital for the College of Health Sciences, adding a science lab annex facility and joining the Big South Conference as a full member for athletics. Bonner was also instrumental in developing several programs of academic enhancement and building state-of-the-art athletic facilities.

Among the most sought after and valued awards conferred by the governor of the State of North Carolina, The Order of the Long Leaf Pine is presented to outstanding North Carolinians who have a proven record of service to the state. Established in 1963, television and film personality Andy Griffith and network news legend David Brinkley were the first to be honored with this award.

Located in the North Carolina foothills, Gardner-Webb University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university that prepares students to become critical thinkers, effective leaders and compassionate servants in the global community. Emphasizing a strong student-centered experience and rigorous academics, Gardner-Webb ignites learning and service opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.

Two Ways Intermountain Healthcare Is Improving Access To Healthcare In Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Healthcare gives donations to many community partners to support its mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible — and here are just two examples of recent community giving.

Intermountain made a $30,000 donation to the Kazan Clinic in rural Garfield and Wayne counties. Kazan Clinic is a member of the Behavioral Health Network, and its system of clinics serves uninsured or underpriviledged patients who need behavioral health services and referrals. Intermountain has helped support the clinic for about five years to enhance its care and staffing. Drop boxes for prescription medications have also been installed in the network for properly disposing unused or expired medication, which supports Intermountain's opioid misuse prevention work.

"Kazan Clinic has been very successful at helping more people get care much faster," says Debbie Hardy, community giving manager at Intermountain. "This partnership improves healthcare access to a wide area of Utah."

The Maliheh Free Clinic in Salt Lake City has received nearly $100,000 in Intermountain donations and grants since 2009. The clinic supports the uninsured with preventive care and patient education — specifically diabetes prevention. Intermountain gave a grant of more than $30,000 to their diabetes prevention clinic in May.

"The Maliheh Clinic has built a wonderful reputation for good care and education, particularly in the Pacific Islander population," says Hardy. "We've found Pacific Islanders feel safe attending classes and getting preventive treatment at the clinic."

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

Attorney Steven R. Pietro explains how best to respond to unusual executive behavior

Steven R. Pietro

Executive departures and erratic behavior are of increasing concern to medium and large-sized businesses across the U.S.

PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Unusual or erratic executive behavior, including unexpected executive departures, represent a significant concern for many businesses in all manner of industries, both in the U.S. and globally. With this in mind, attorney Steven R. Pietro underscores the importance of exercising oversight of senior management and executives in their handling of a company's business and other affairs.

A board responsibility, the established corporate attorney, from Broward County, Florida, highlights several key areas of concern which must always be promptly addressed should they or similar situations arise.

"A senior executive may engage in accusatory communications," suggests Pietro, "which is of particular concern when the investor sector is involved."

He also points toward erratic comments made toward the press, on social media, or elsewhere online. "In situations such as these, the matter must be promptly addressed by the company's board," adds the attorney.

Occasionally an executive or another member of senior management may refuse to heed board directions, something which Pietro says simply cannot be tolerated. "Where this becomes an issue, it is usually advisable to seek outside legal help in order to resolve the matter," he adds.

Another area of concern for Pietro, and something which he suggests has increased in prevalence in recent years, is a high turnover of senior staff – especially those who are newly hired. "This can point to an issue at the highest level or levels, and may be the result of the unfavorable or otherwise erratic behavior of, for example, the company's CEO," he reveals.

This, he says, should not merely be considered a human resources issue, but should instead be addressed by the company's board. "Turnover of senior executives, especially at—or close to—vice presidential level is often a serious indicator of bigger problems at the top," Pietro adds.

According to the Broward County attorney, evaluating and monitoring performance among senior figures, including a company's CEO, should be considered a critical board function and must never be overlooked.

Undisciplined CEO behavior, he points out, can—at best—pose a distraction within a company, and—at worst—potentially negatively affect its value and reputation, in some cases irreparably.

"At the first suggestion of any of these or similar warning signs, it is critical that the board take appropriate action without delay," Pietro adds, wrapping up.

Footnanny CEO Gloria L. Williams Inks a Deal with International Retail Giant Costco

The Lavender Foot Cream Pamper Box includes a 8 oz. jar of foot cream, a mini jar of Protein foot cream that contains rice protein oil, a Rescue buffer and a pair of 100% cotton socks. Lavender essential oil, used in aromatherapy, relieves tension and anxiety.

The aroma of eucalyptus is healing and soothing. The Eucalyptus Foot Cream Pamper Box includes a 8 ounce jar of foot cream, a mini jar of Protein foot cream made with rice protein oil, a Rescue buffer and a bonus gift of a pair of one-size-fits-most 100% cotton socks.

If you are a diabetic or don’t care for aromatic products, this is for you! The Unscented Foot Cream Pamper Box includes a 8 ounce jar of foot cream, a mini jar of Protein foot cream made with rice protein oil, a Rescue buffer and a pair of 100% cotton socks.

Gloria L. Williams, the CEO and founder of Footnanny.com, is proud to announce that her Made-in-USA Footnanny brand is now available at Costco.com. All products are paraben free and cruelty free.

Footnanny CEO Gloria L. Williams provides “wellness beyond the pedicure,” through her extensive foot care product line. The limited edition pamper box collection is only available at Costco.com.

The Footnanny Brand's Top 3 Best-Selling Made-in-USA Foot Creams: Lavender, Eucalyptus, and Unscented are Available in an Exclusive Pamper Box at Costco.com

Costco and Footnanny share the same philosophy. We both appreciate our customers and provide quality products at a great value.”

— Gloria L. Williams, Footnanny Founder and CEO

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Footnanny Founder and CEO Gloria L. Williams announced today that she sealed a deal with international retail giant Costco to offer its customers an exclusive gift set. The Footnanny brand's top 3 best-selling made-in-USA foot creams: Lavender, Eucalyptus, and Unscented are available in a limited edition pamper box at Costco.com. Inside each pamper box is a 8 ounce jar of foot cream, a mini jar of protein foot cream made with rice protein oil, a Rescue dry buffer and a bonus gift of a pair of one-size-fits- most 100% cotton socks.

"Costco and Footnanny share the same philosophy," said Williams. "We both appreciate our customers and provide quality products at a great value." The Footnanny brand was created by Williams as a tribute to her mother's legacy. "My products are made-in-USA and are paraben free and cruelty free."

Inside the limited edition Lavender, Eucalyptus, and Unscented pamper box collection:

Footnanny foot creams have health and wellness benefits. The essential oil of lavender relieves tension and anxiety. The aroma of eucalyptus is healing and soothing. If you are a diabetic or don't care for aromatic products, the unscented foot cream has the same rich formula without the fragrance.

The Protein foot cream contains rice protein oil. Rice protein is extracted raw from rice milk and rice proteins. It has become one of the most valuable cosmetic product ingredients over time and Footnanny has now added it to its product line. Rice is rich in amino acids, Vitamin E, ferulic acid, allantoin, and starch.

"I use rice protein because it soothes and smooths cracked heels," said Williams. "It will also help your feet with circulation and retain moisture and hydration."

Footnanny Rescue Dry Buffer is the fastest and easiest way to remove and smooth dry or calloused skin from the bottom of your feet. The buffer has two sides: a medium grit and a coarse grit.

The Footnanny foot cream products are formulated with essential compounds of soy, shea and cocoa butter and the fragrances are based on Williams' fond memories from her childhood – from lavender, rose, peppermint, sage, mint, chocolate to tea tree, and more. Apply the foot cream to your feet twice a day or as needed for the best results.

Williams' foot care business, Footnanny, rose to fame after Oprah Winfrey tweeted about her brand. Williams shares the story of how she met Oprah on Episode 3 of the unscripted OWN TV summer series, "Mind Your Business with Mahisha." The show about Los Angeles-based female entrepreneurs is available on demand at oprah.com.

Her mantra is "wellness beyond the pedicure." When Williams shares the story of her beginnings, it is her mother that gave her inspiration. "My mother believed that certain foods, oils, and teas played a crucial role in the overall recovery of a person's ailments. She swore by the wellness healing process," said Williams. "Mom would mix luxurious creams, ointments and oils, which we would apply using a technique known as the "old fashioned rub down" on those in need of a loving touch."

Footnanny foot cream has more than 15 fragrances including vegan and hemp. Additional Footnanny products from foot soaking salts, rescue buffs to foot files are available at www.footnanny.com.

Celebrities and dignitaries have experienced the Footnanny brand of ultimate indulgence, including long-time client Ms. Winfrey.

Henson; Randy Jackson; Lady Gaga; Loretta Devine; Omar Gooding; A$AP Rocky; Cicely Tyson; Julia Roberts; Sean "P Diddy" Combs; Jimmy Jean-Louis; Bellamy Young; Sela Ward; Rita Wilson; Liana Mendoza; Patrick Faucette; Paula Jai Parker; Jessica Simpson; Ashanti; Christy Turlington; Keri Russell; Steve and Marjorie Harvey; Karen Civil; and more.

Life Care Planning: Post-Sanchez Decision

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Sanchez adds an additional burden on Defense and Plaintiff Attorneys. Our experts in the trauma related medical fields have reduced this burden in time and expense to zero.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC provides Sanchez proof testimony for its defense and plaintiff life care plans that relates to the anticipated cost of necessary future medical care by providing opinions in its life care plans from neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and Board-Certified physicians in Physical Medicine.

Historically, evidence that was presented to the jury that relates to the cost of future medical care for an injured person was provided by costing research obtained from sources that include CPT Codes (Current Procedural Terminology) and data obtained by phone calls to vendors (doctors, hospitals, equipment) of the actual cost charged for goods and services in the location where the injured person resides. California Evidence Code requires that an expert base their opinion on their ‘knowledge, skill, experience, education, and training’. In addition, California Evidence Code allow an expert to ‘state on direct examination the reasons for his opinion…., unless precluded by law from using such reasons.’

The Sanchez Decision by the California Supreme Court in June of 2016 has precluded a physician or nurse from relying on costing research provided for by this historic practice of obtaining cost data by life care planners, as this case has ruled that this testimony and reliance on these costing data essentially becomes ‘testimonial hearsay’ and is now barred by the confrontation clause of the Sixth Amendment.

Attorneys must now incur significant costs for expert opinions that independently can be relied upon a physician’s ‘skill, knowledge, experience, education, and training’ as it relates to the cost of future medical care. Non-catastrophic injuries such as disc herniations, rotator cuff tears, and knee injuries all have anticipated future care to patient’s life expectancy. Catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, burns, and amputations have future medical care in the millions. Plaintiff and defense attorneys must now get evidence of future care cost in by relying on experts with the ‘knowledge and experience’ that relates to cost.

Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, led by Dr. Greg Vigna, provides Sanchez proof testimony by using neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, prosthetic experts, trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons trained in burn care, and Board-Certified Physician in Physical Medicine Rehabilitation for its opinions that relate to all necessary future care and its cost, and life expectancy analysis. The physicians also have experience in fees related to facility fee cost.

Dr. Vigna adds, “Sanchez adds an additional burden on Defense and Plaintiff Attorneys. Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, through its experts in the trauma related medical fields, has reduced this burden in time and expense to zero.”

Dr. Greg Vigna, owner of Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC, is a practicing attorney, Certified Life Care Planner, and Board-Certified Physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation currently is the Medical Director of HealthSouth Modesto. Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC provides this service with no additional cost for its defense and plaintiff life care plans.

The funding commitments validate the Company’s proprietary system for medical doctor online reputation management (ORM)

Physician Defense Group, LLC (N/A:N/A)

For Online Reputation Management for medical doctors, we avoid Social Media because it may actually multiply negative information by giving other parties”

— Anais Smith, Admin Manager

MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Physician Defense Group, LLC (PDG), a Miami-based company focusing on online reputation management for medical doctors, has received $10 million in funding commitments from Florida-based investors. The funding will allow PDG to expand operations and move to a new office location in Miami Beach, Florida. Also, the funds permit the expansion of its IT resources.

There are many Social Media Marketing firms and Online Reputation Management (ORM) companies, however, PDG has developed a proprietary system specifically for physicians. Generally, Social Media Marketing firms use Social Media to have a physician’s or medical practice’s profile circulate on the internet. PDG, however, uses substantive material to emphasize the positive aspects of a doctor’s practice.

PDG was founded by Internet Marketing Specialists and law practice managers who have first-hand experience with the challenges of the practice of medicine and the potential negative effects of the internet on reputation and business development.

“We avoid Social Media because it may actually multiply negative information by giving other parties, including self-appointed vigilante, an opportunity to respond in negative ways,” says Anais Smith, Admin Manager. “The funding commitments we have received validate our proprietary system because the investors believe that we have found a better approach to Online Reputation Management.”

PDG focuses in particular on physicians who are adversely affected by the disciplinary system of the various medical boards and associations. This addresses the needs of doctors who have been “sanctioned” or gone through a “disciplinary action.” Once a board or association publishes negative information about a physician, no matter how small, such information gets multiplied on the internet and can cripple a medical practice.

“Let’s say a physician is sanctioned by a board or association for allegedly prescribing an incorrect medication. A patient looking for a doctor who finds this information on the internet will, in most cases, not fully understand how relevant or not relevant this is as to the doctor’s professional abilities,” adds Anais. “This information appears in multiple forms. The boards usually send it by email right to the inbox of all physician members. Then it is permanently attached to the doctor’s name in the physician directory of the board. Finally, many Boards send out press releases or even publish it in newsletters.”

Such adverse information can severely impact a physician’s ability to continue a medical practice. The potential financial losses are significant, because someone finding such information on the internet may consider the physician “not trustworthy” – without knowing anything else about that physician. PDG uses a proprietary system to assist physicians in promoting the positive aspects of their medical practice, thus counter-acting the adverse effects of a sanction.

About Physician Defense Group, LLC (PDG)

Physician Defense Group, LLC (PDG) is a Miami-based Online Reputation Management (ORM) company focusing on physicians who have adverse information such a disciplinary action circulating on the internet. While one cannot simply delete most such adverse information, it can become much less relevant once the positive aspects of a doctor’s practice are appropriately displayed. To this end, PDG has developed a proprietary system for Online Reputation Management.

Miles Clark, Director Of Clinical Research for Clinical Based Research Company, Excited To Be A Part of Waite Enterprise

Waite Enterprise CEO Daniel Waite working closely with Miles Clark to build out the health sector of Corporate Holdings.

DALLAS, TX, USA, October 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Clinical Based Research is a successful clinical research organization based in Dallas, TX. The company is currently moving in to the new Waite Enterprise corporate headquarters facilities in Dallas, and is part of Daniel Waite and the company’s leadership’s long term diversification planning. The company is an emerging leader in the clinical studies data sector of the health industry.

“Clinical based research is more than a great company. CBR provides great services in an area of need.” Waite Enterprise CEO Daniel Waite explains. “CBR focuses on post market clinical research as well as phase trials. Clinical Based Research is excited to announce Miles Clark as the director of clinical research. Miles has a background in finance, clinical research and other sectors as well. He has 8 years in the post market clinical research and phase trials. Also several years with a billion dollar hedge fund. He is simply a leader in a strong sector for this company who understands the bigger picture. He is a specialist in his field but he understands the larger aspects of finance and investing and leveraging.

“That is really what we are building here, quality people and leadership that provide great guidance and insight so that we stay ahead of the field. When you boil it down, what is a company anyway but its people? You think of Ford you think of cars and trucks but it started with Henry Ford and his vision. You think of Apple you think of technology devices but it started with Steve Jobs and his vision and drive. We are building a company filled with diverse leadership, expertise and skill sets. So sure we will hold diverse physical assets like gold and Bitcoin and real estate to leverage profits against financial and economic turmoil, but we are adding leaders like Miles and Roberto Saenz and Larry Pickett that are worth more than all the gold and BTC in the universe. Waite Enterprise with visionaries and leaders like Miles is becoming a diverse business leadership and innovation basket. That is the long term goal. Not to just have the gold to cover economic hardships, to have the leaders that can help us fix the economic hardship in the first place. The investments will just buy them the time they need to develop and implement strategies and get to work.”
