Progressive Care Inc. Announces First Annual National HIV Testing Day Event Sponsored by PharmCo, LLC(June 21, 2012)
MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/21/12 -- Progressive Care, Inc. (OTCBB: RXMD) and its subsidiary PharmCo, LLC ("PharmCo"), a provider of prescription pharmaceuticals, specializing in anti-retroviral patient care, long term care and durable medical equipment announced today that it will hold its First Annual National HIV Testing Day Event on June 27, 2012 in the City of Opa Locka, FL.
The CDC estimates that more than 1 million people are living in the United States with HIV/AIDS, with approximately 1 in every 5 unaware of his or her status. This year will mark the 17th year for National HIV Testing Day where individuals, groups, organizations, and governments reflect on the impact of HIV/AIDS, raise awareness, promote education, and encourage as many people as possible to get tested, and know their status. The theme of the day is "Take the Test. Take Control," to show that knowing your status is empowering whether the result is positive or negative. Company spokesperson, recording artist and community activist Luther Campbell said "South Florida is severely impacted by HIV/AIDS as infection rates continue to be one of the highest in the nation. I am proud to support PharmCo on National HIV Testing Day and hope that as many people as possible will come out and get tested. "
In keeping with the message and importance of this day and to further the Company's mission of reaching out to local communities, PharmCo is sponsoring a Health Fair that will provide free HIV & STD screening with the goal of conducting as many tests as possible. The Health Fair will also provide free educational information, materials and access to medical counseling and care to increase awareness of the impact of infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS. PharmCo will assist any patient who receives a positive test result in finding an appropriate physician and gaining access to life saving medication. Furthermore, PharmCo will provide access to charitable organizations who can help with housing, counseling, insurance enrollment, etc.
The Company's CEO, Avraham Friedman, expressed excitement over the event stating, "We are pleased that free testing services will be available at our event on this important day as we think about those past and present affected by HIV/AIDS. With over 50,000 American infected with HIV each year, PharmCo is dedicated to doing its part to increase awareness to prevent the spread of HIV and help those who may be afflicted with the disease. We are proud that our event will have total patient care, from free testing, education and prevention materials to offering access to needed healthcare providers and treatment."
