Dr. Wellness PPE and Vending Pharmacy Kiosks Launch at San Diego State University

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Dr. Wellness Kiosks, LLC announced today that they have launched their PPE and Vending Pharmacy Kiosks at San Diego State University. Amid the spread of new coronavirus cases on recently opened college campuses, San Diego State University took another step in prevention by providing Dr. Wellness PPE and Vending Pharmacy Kiosks across the campus.

With a built-in, complimentary hand sanitizer dispenser and touchless payment options, the Dr. Wellness Kiosks retail Personal Protection Equipment along with serving as a Vending Pharmacy by offering cold, flu, and wellness products. "Dr. Wellness has been a great addition to our campus in our efforts in providing the safest possible campus for our returning students", says General Merchandise Manager, Ambre Dorsett of SDSU.

Making PPE and household pharmacy products convenient through a vending machine, Dr. Wellness Kiosks is looking to grow its footprint through colleges, apartment and condo complexes, and major retail outlets.

"Dr. Wellness was created to not only provide Personal Protection Equipment during the pandemic, but to serve as a convenient way of going to the pharmacy through automated retail," says Marshall Shen, Owner of Dr. Wellness Kiosks, LLC. "The idea was actually born out of running to the pharmacy in the middle of the night with a sick child, but, evolved with covid-19 spreading to carry PPE on college campuses."

Retailing sanitation kits, face mask packs, fashionable face covers, and major medicine brands such as Tylenol, Nyquil, and Advil, Dr. Wellness Kiosks has gained a following at SDSU as students are able to request new products through a QR Code to facilitate living on campus during a pandemic. Toothbrushes, deodorant, and mouthwash have been popularly requested by students living on campus.

Dr. Wellness Kiosks (www.drwellnesskiosks.com) are expanding rapidly across Southern California and are placed at locations at no cost to the host site. Partnering with BioProtect (www.bioprotect.us), all kiosks are wiped down weekly that provides protection against germs and bacteria including covid-19 bacteria for up to 60 days. Utilizing a QR Code for service requests, customer service, and product requests allow the kiosks to integrate with the local community on products that are desirable and needed by residents. By leveraging Google Business, Dr. Wellness is looking to bring convenience to the pharmacy segment through automated retail.

Mulberry School in Los Gatos, California Adopts OverSightMD COVID-19 Reopening Solution for Tracking and Screening

LOS GATOS, Calif. -- OverSightMD is committed to ensuring schools across the country like Mulberry School in Los Gatos, California can safely reopen with its COVID-19 tracking and screening solution. OverSightMD has expanded its capabilities from serving front line healthcare workers to now supporting students, teachers, and staff at campuses of any size.

As states and local counties determine regulations for allowing schools to reopen, OverSightMD has a proven solution to manage COVID-19 risks on campuses. On Tuesday, September 8, Mulberry School in Los Gatos was the first school to reopen regular classes with OverSightMD COVID-19 reopening support.

During the summer OverSightMD refined its platform and services to meet the unique demands of students, teachers, and staff by working with a summer camp in New Jersey. On a daily basis school administrators have access to real-time information through OverSightMD's collection and analysis of health symptoms, vital signs and COVID exposure risks from all students, teachers, and staff.

The OverSightMD answer to COVID-19 screening and tracking is a complete turnkey solution for schools and organizations wanting to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
* The solution includes:
* HIPAA Compliant Software Platform
* Mobile Friendly Interface
* Data Monitoring by Nurses
* COVID Testing & Tracking
* Contract Tracing Documentation
* Quarantine Compliance Tracking

The administrators for Mulberry School, a private school in Los Gatos, CA had been seeking a solution to complete the waiver requirements for Santa Clara county to reopen classes. "We are excited to support Mulberry school to reopen," says Mark Godwin, CEO of OverSightMD. "Reopening schools is critical in order for the rest of society to reopen and return to a level of normalcy."

OverSightMD is committed to leveraging our experience with monitoring front-line healthcare workers and our most vulnerable seniors with our COVID-19 tracking and screening solution. Parents, students and teachers can have peace of mind that our platform and team have the capabilities to safely reopen schools and reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure. According to recent CDC research, Coronavirus has spread in childcare facilities and then directly to family members they have close contact with. OverSightMD is focused on reducing the risks students, parents, and teachers are under by daily tracking and screening for symptoms, vitals, and exposure of all individuals in their community.

"Using OverSightMD's COVID-19 tracking and screening platform gives us the confidence to reopen and protect our staff, students, and their families," says Kara Riordan, Head of Mulberry School. "We received support from OverSightMD while processing our school waiver application and were able to deploy their solution immediately after approval with no delay."

The OverSightMD mobile web application allows parents or employees to report symptoms, vital signs, and answer COVID-19 exposure questions easily into a HIPAA-compliant web-based platform from the privacy of their home. The platform maintains a live COVID dashboard and generates detailed reports for school administrators to quickly access information about any COVID exposure across their school community. School administrators can act on this real-time information to prevent potential COVID-19 exposure or spreading to other students, teachers, and staff by following their state issued COVID-19 guidelines and OverSightMD recommendations.

COVID-19 testing can be made available to participating schools and districts with test results integrated into each student's or employee's personal health record.

OverSightMD has years of experience providing its healthcare platform and oversight services to hospital systems and providers and is well-equipped to support schools during this pandemic. The OverSightMD platform is simple for parents to use and very effective at quickly highlighting risks for school administrators.

Making Sure Kids Get Healthy Food Even When School Is Virtual

TUKWILA, Wash. -- InnovAsian, a national supplier of Asian frozen food products, announced today a new philanthropic effort that will deliver healthy, tasty meals to students and the broader community though Seattle Public Schools (SPS) distribution sites. Because of the pandemic, schools are teaching remotely, and food insecurity is increasing.

At the same time, more people are buying frozen food to cook at home. The combination of increased need and increased ability to help has resulted in InnovAsian stepping up to pledge food equivalent to 5,000 meals.

This donation will be delivered in partnership with two other Seattle-area organizations: FareStart, a non-profit feeding and food service training program and Gourmondo, a local catering company. InnovAsian will supply the food for operations, FareStart and Gourmondo will provide their chefs, labor and delivery infrastructure to ensure the meals meet nutritional guidelines, are delicious, and get delivered to the 26 SPS food distribution sites set up during the pandemic.

"InnovAsian is fortunate to see our frozen sales rise as consumers are shifting more food dollars to grocery stores as families are staying home. It is important to us to pay it forward and help connect families to meals in our local community who are in dire need of food resources during this pandemic," said Debbie Curdy, vice president of marketing and innovation.

"We are incredibly grateful for InnovAsian's support of FareStart emergency meals," said Matt Gurney, vice president of enterprise development. "Due to COVID-19, food insecurity remains a huge challenge in our community - especially for youth and their families. Through this partnership, we'll be able to provide thousands of nutritious, reheatable dinners for people in need."

"This partnership with InnovAsian and FareStart is extremely important to Gourmondo- it is inspiring to work with both non-profit organizations and other food suppliers to support our community in a time when the need has never been greater. I am proud and grateful to work with both these organizations, to be able to do what we love and help provide meals to those who need them most," said Alissa Leinonen, CEO and founder.

Three brands each bring unique skills and assets to meet growing need

With food insecurity on the rise and reaching historical high levels around the state, emergency food services such as food banks and meal programs like this are more urgent than ever before. The expectation is that the crisis will continue for months to come and according to No Kid Hungry one in four children in the United States could face hunger this year because of the coronavirus.

The three local brands coming together to create this partnership all have a legacy of charitable giving; Earlier this year, InnovAsian raised and matched funds to support Meals on Wheels for a total of $30,000; Gourmondo has a robust, multi-faceted give back program which includes supplying over 200,000 meals since the beginning of the pandemic to our most vulnerable populations, and has previously partnered with FareStart in the SPS program. FareStart has now served more than 1.1 million emergency meals since their COVID-19 response efforts began in March. Amazon has been a consistent collaborator throughout the pandemic with both Gourmondo and FareStart and is partnering here to further provide financial support for the labor.

The skills each brings to this partnership reflect each organization's strengths: FareStart has the relationship with SPS, skilled chefs to design menus that meet children and family nutritional needs, and a cadre of volunteers who help with distribution. Gourmondo is providing their talented chefs, cooking, expansive kitchen space, packaging, and delivery labor. And InnovAsian is donating generous quantities of their easy-to prepare frozen Asian food as the main ingredient to make this all possible.

Food will be delivered every Wednesday for four weeks starting September 23, 2020 to SPS for families and children to pick up at the distribution centers. Anyone in need is eligible to pick up meals.

Thousands of Scholars Driving Innovation to be Recognized During 11th National Postdoc Appreciation Week

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) announced the 11th annual National Postdoc Appreciation Week (NPAW) will take place September 21 - 25, 2020. NPAW is the nation's largest celebration of postdoctoral scholars who serve at more than 300 institutions, acknowledging the significant contributions these "postdocs" make to U.S. research and discovery. This year, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the first virtual NPAW will allow universities to open events to postdocs from other institutions across the country.

"NPAW is a well-earned celebration of the inspiration and perspiration of the tens of thousands of postdocs working to advance early-stage research across thousands of topical areas from finding a vaccine for COVID-19 to reimagining more diverse, equitable and inclusive learning environments," said Tom Kimbis, NPA executive director and CEO. "Postdocs help drive American leadership and competitiveness across all aspects of our lives."

Postdocs are individuals holding doctoral degrees engaged in a temporary period of mentored research or scholarly training to gain needed skills to excel in their careers. These scholars conduct a large share of critical, cutting-edge research across all disciplines at universities, research institutions and industry members across the U.S.

NPAW boosts awareness of the critical work of the estimated 80,000 postdocs in the United States. In 2019, 556 events were held by 121 organizations, spanning 35 states and 98 cities. In recent years, NPAW expanded to Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Popular events during NPAW include professional and career development workshops, networking activities, and social events celebrating the immense contribution of postdocs to our nation's thought leadership.

This year's celebration includes a keynote featuring John Beacom, Ph.D., Henry L. Cox professor of physics and astronomy at the Ohio State University, and Christine Pfund, Ph.D., senior scientist with the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, discussing best practices for mentorship, as well as national webinars hosted by key NPA partners -- a National Research Mentoring Network event focused on diversity in mentoring and a Postdoc Academy opportunity to hone leadership skills.

During NPAW, the NPA is also debuting NPA Communities, an online member engagement platform designed to share best practices, encourage communal solutions to common problems facing the greater postdoc community, and assist scholars in advancing their careers. All NPA member institutions are welcome to join the new network. A calendar of NPAW events can be found at http://www.nationalpostdoc.org/2020NPAW. NPAW is made possible by Distinguished Sponsor, Gallagher Insurance, and NPAW 2020 Lead Sponsor, Proteintech.

The week-long celebration sponsored by the NPA grew out of National Postdoc Appreciation Day in 2009 followed by formal recognition of NPAW by the U.S. House of Representatives on September 24, 2010.

About National Postdoctoral Association:

The NPA is a charitable and educational non-profit association headquartered in Rockville, Maryland, that seeks to improve the postdoctoral experience by supporting a culture of enhanced professional growth. At the individual, organizational, and national levels, the NPA facilitates connections, raises awareness, and collaborates with stakeholders in the postdoctoral community. Membership in the NPA is open to all organizations and individuals interested in advancing the interests of postdocs in the U.S.

Affiliate membership in the NPA for most postdocs is free and available at https://www.nationalpostdoc.org/.

Schools Push for Ways to Respond to Demands for Student & Faculty Safety

KENILWORTH, N.J. -- During this pandemic with major swings in the number of cases at schools you have a situation where institutions are scrambling like never before. Johnstone Supply offers the iWave-C from NuCalgon, patented, self-cleaning needle-point bi-polar ionization technology, with tests showing a 99.4% rate of reduction in Covid-19.

iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any air conditioning or heating system. When air passes over it, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, bacteria and viruses, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts. iWave's technology generates the same ions that nature creates with lightening, waterfalls, and ocean waves, etc. The only difference between the iWave's technology and nature is that the iWave does it without developing harmful ozone.

"Noting a lack of understanding of the options available," said Bob Zimmermann, president of Johnstone Supply's Kenilworth Group, "we started taking meetings with local school superintendents to identify the best solutions for various types of spaces and needs."

Many schools throughout New Jersey and dozens across the US have already installed these systems to provide an extra level of protection for students and faculty to safely return to live, in-person classes making, it a central component of their preparedness and response plan.

HVAC technical expert and trainer, Frank Taverna also created a short video to explain the differences in technologies and the science behind the solution.

Although there is no silver bullet to stopping the spread of Covid-19, many are breathing a little easier knowing that tested solutions are being implemented to help get us back to the lives we all knew.

Green Kid Crafts launches Kitchen Table STEAM to Support Families This Fall

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- As families transition from summer activities to virtual, in-person, or hybrid schooling this fall, many caregivers are concerned about providing their children with activities that are fun and educational. Green Kid Crafts, a subscription box service centered on STEAM and nature-based activities, launched their Kitchen Table STEAM program on September 2 to give families extra support this fall.

The campaign color, pink, was chosen for its reference to the fireweed plant. Fireweed is often the first plant to regrow after a forest fire or volcanic eruption, making it a symbol of hope for families during this trying time.

"Coming up with fun, STEAM-based activities can be challenging even in normal times," said Founder and CEO Penny Bauder. "Caregivers don't have time to scroll through search results or go shopping for supplies. We want to alleviate the investment it takes to get started and bring exactly what families need to provide engaging hands-on activities right to their door."

Jessica Whiting, a mom of two, was familiar with these struggles as she tried to work full time and provide quick activities for her daughters. "Everything we needed for each activity was in the box, and the kids had a ton of fun," she explained. "We could quickly do these activities in between meetings and phone calls and everybody was happy. These boxes will stay in the rotation for sure!"

Caregivers like Whiting are ready for this fall's Kitchen Table STEAM program, which includes four STEAM-based activity boxes designed by experts to meet the learning needs of specific age groups.

Additionally, subscribers will receive supplemental materials, including access to:
* Ask-a-Scientist sessions
* YouTube videos with activity inspiration from real parents
* Additional learning opportunities related to each box, including DIY activities, podcast, video and book recommendations

Caregivers will also have an opportunity to submit their child's artwork to our Kitchen Table Show and Tell, hosted by CEO Penny Bauder.

About Green Kid Crafts:

Green Kid Crafts is a subscription box service that provides educational STEAM and nature-based activities that help kids connect, communicate and build relationships. Projects and ideas are researched and tested, saving families time and money on at-home activities. The organization has recently been honored with top Industry Awards: Parents Choice Award(R) and NCW Eco-Excellence Award(R). https://www.greenkidcrafts.com/awards

EnergyCAP, Inc. Celebrates 40th Anniversary with New Headquarters, Logo, Training Services, and More

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- EnergyCAP, Inc. (ECI) is pleased to announce a list of notable accomplishments as it celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2020.

New EnergyCAP Headquarters

ECI employees will begin operating from the company's new state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot headquarters facility this month.

The building is located on a prime lot in the Boalsburg Technology Park. To the south, there are beautiful unobstructed views of Tussey Mountain, and to the north, Mount Nittany. The site is directly adjacent to the planned Harris Township Tussey Pond Park and connects to the recently developed network of hiking and mountain bike trails of the Harvest Fields Community Trail System. Besides enjoying the inspiring mountain views, employees and family members will have free and easy access to disc golf, miles of trails, fishing, a picnic pavilion, fitness center, local bus service, and streams and ponds, with convenient childcare available next door.

ECI's new address is: EnergyCAP, Inc., 360 Discovery Drive, Boalsburg, PA 16827.

New Logo and Icons

ECI's 40-year anniversary year became a great occasion to modernize the company's logo. The new design is displayed on the new headquarters facility and is being rolled out to the software and webpages: https://www.energycap.com/

EnergyCAP Academy

The pandemic forced ECI to cancel its popular national Catalyst training conference in April, in addition to other in-person training opportunities. In quick response, the company created EnergyCAP Academy, a collection of online training courses that EnergyCAP users can complete at their own pace.

The EnergyCAP Academy courses are an easy and convenient way for users to develop EnergyCAP Version 7 skills and earn Professional Development Hours (PDH). The collection of Academy training programs starts with EnergyCAP Fundamentals. From there, users can complete programs focused on energy management functionality, utility bill accounting, and chargebacks accounting. Users can also confirm their mastery of EnergyCAP's concepts and functionality by successfully completing an online exam to earn the Mastery of EnergyCAP certificate.

Additional information about the Academy courses and other valuable EnergyCAP services is accessible through ECI's Customer Services Catalog within the online Help Center.

FedRAMP Marketplace

Independently verified compliance with strict federal information security regulations is a gold standard for software. After a two-year effort to upgrade and certify software, policies, testing protocols, cloud hosting environment, internal networks, and even building physical security, EnergyCAP is now the only energy information software in its class to be listed in the FedRAMP Marketplace.

The Marketplace listing, in conjunction with a GSA contract, makes it easier than ever for federal agencies and other publicly funded organizations to license and implement EnergyCAP.

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)

ECI launched its Bill CAPture utility bill process service in 2015, and the scope of available services has grown considerably over the past five years. Focusing initially on obtaining and processing utility bills, Bill CAPture added an Account Management service in 2019 and now completes the monthly utility bill process by offering bill payment services.

Organizations looking to reduce bill processing costs and eliminate late fees should contact ECI to learn more about how Bill CAPture can help.

EnergyCAP, Inc.'s CEO, Steve Heinz commented, "What a year it has been! And let me say that 40 times for the last forty years. Beginning with the simple proposition in 1980 that emerging PC technology could take the pain out of tracking energy information and validating troublesome utility bills, EnergyCAP software now processes millions of bills annually valued at tens of billions of dollars, and is a trusted tool for thousands of energy management and utility accounting professionals. Our beautiful new corporate headquarters is the perfect venue for the next 40 years of innovation and growth."

About EnergyCAP

EnergyCAP, Inc. has helped more than 10,000 energy managers in government, education, and commercial organizations derive value from their utility bills and energy data. Clients use our comprehensive EnergyCAP software-based solution to streamline utility bill processing and auditing, track energy and greenhouse gas data, process campus chargebacks, target reduction goals, benchmark facilities, submit to ENERGY STAR, measure and verify energy & cost savings, create budgets and forecasts, and much more.

The New Adulting: High School and College Success During Troubled Times

PASADENA, Calif. -- College is a completely different world from High School. It can be a stressful and, at times, unhappy environment for those struggling to make the adjustment, says Live ADHD Free founder Carol Gignoux, M. Ed. For those students with ADHD, it may even be more so.

With high pressure to get good grades and a lower level of individualized support, college expectations can stretch a teen's resources, with or without ADHD. Add to these issues the fact of remote and distance learning from home or school, and you have another potential layer of challenge and frustration.

Because having or not having the right study habits can lead to college success or failure, it is important to learn them in High School or at the very latest, the first semester Freshman year.

As we now understand the impact of distance learning on families and students, helping students navigate this new normal will require a unique set of strategies and support in addition to problems caused by bad habits and behaviors such as:
* Giving in to distractions
* Missing deadlines
* Poor test preparation
* Trouble getting started
* Attempting to complete assignments last minute
* Not maintaining the right work environment

Carol Gignoux, M. Ed., author of "Your Innovator Brain: The Truth About ADHD," has developed a quiz that will help all teens, parents of teens, and those with ADHD, assess their preparedness for the college environment.

It can be taken here: https://liveadhdfree.com/quiz-adhd-and-college-success/

After taking the quiz, the teen or parent who discovers that more help is needed will be referred to Carol's programs where they can contact Carol to ask questions before signing up.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Westfall is working with Columbus based digital media company, Livecast365, and their proprietary streaming technology. They pursued their very own dedicated TV network and TV channels to support athletics and education throughout their community.

* Wesftall and Livecast365 partner to broadcast sporting events and educational programming to district residents and fans through Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire devices.

* The district's first TV channel is set to launch with the upcoming football season. It will allow both home and visiting team's fans, as well as friends and relatives around the country, to tune into Westfall's events with a digital ticket-based system.

* Livecast365 believes these previously unobtainable services and capabilities should be accessible to educational communities at local and regional levels.

* Westfall District staff, volunteers, and students will run the network operation, and double as unique on-the-job training for students interested in furthering education in media.

Westfall Local School District, located just outside of Williamsport, Ohio, has partnered with Columbus, Ohio based Livecast365 to launch its very own TV channel. Joining many schools in the race to provide access this fall to their communities. The channel will launch this fall, starting with live and recorded broadcasts of Westfall High School football games.

This is just the start of Westfall's efforts to bring the school district's many resources and opportunities directly into the homes and living rooms of district residents. It will also allow other districts, competing against Westfall's teams, to tune in and watch the games.

Location and accessibility have become obsolete problems. Now, friends and family throughout the country will be able to tune in. No one wants to miss their granddaughters or grandson's shining moments; with Livecast365, no one will have to. Livecast365 will assist Westfall at a time when attendance will be severely limited due to Covid-19 restrictions. Not to mention, the school district will have more diverse and unique opportunities to support their advertisers. Our partnership with Westfall provides them with greater control of revenue generating opportunities for clubs, teams, and the district itself, well beyond the typical posting of videos to channels such as YouTube, which takes ownership of content and prospective ad revenue.

Through Livecast365, creators have the capability to bypass cable, broadcast, and satellite television platforms (the companies that traditionally act as a controller/distributor of such content). In short, you can create your very own and personally branded TV channel. What's even better? All of your generated revenue stays in your pocket. You can create live streaming content, pre-programmed content, pay-per-view content, and socially shareable content. Anywhere, anytime, through Livecast365. The platform allows viewers to choose when, where, and how they watch content.
