— Dr. Kenneth P Rebong, pediatrician

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In brief, asthma is a chronic disease affecting the airways that carry air in and out of the lungs. With asthma, the inside walls of the airways are sore and swollen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6.2 million children under the age of 18 have this condition (8.4%). Because children have smaller airways, they are particularly affected by it. Affected children have symptoms such as trouble breathing, wheezing, and coughing. There are many causes, including infections (such as a cold), allergens (such as mold or pollen), and air pollution.

Medical doctor Kenneth P. Rebong, MD has published an informational article with a few simple steps to better control your child’s asthma. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Rebong at https://drkennethrebong.wordpress.com/

Asthma Causes

Asthma refers to the inflammation and irritation in the lungs. People suffering from asthma face difficulty in breathing and often need an inhaler to soothe the inflamed airways. This disease cannot be cured but its effects can be controlled by strictly following rules. Here are the most common asthma causes:

* Allergens such as pollen, dust particles, pet hair, and feathers
* Flu
* Air pollution
* Sudden weather changes
* Certain medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen
* Mold spores
* Heavy exercise

What Causes Asthma

Asthma is growing with the rapid increase in air pollution. Today, about 1 out of 12 people are suffering from asthma and this number is growing each day. What causes asthma is not exactly known, but there are certain risk factors that increase the chances of a person developing this disease. The risk factors include:

* Genetics – Some people suffer from asthma because they inherited it from one of their parents. There’s nothing they can do about it except keeping themselves away from things that trigger their asthma.
* Allergy – Children with allergies tend to develop asthma. Eczema, food allergies, and hay fever are the common culprits behind the development of asthma.
* Bronchiolitis – It is a lung disease which creates difficulty in breathing. Children develop it at an early age if they are exposed to the Bronchiolitis virus.
* Smoking – If a pregnant woman smokes cigarettes, it is more likely that her unborn child develops asthma.
* Pre-mature babies – Children who are born before 37 weeks are at a high risk of developing asthma.

Asthma Symptoms

People take these symptoms lightly and ignore them, ruling out the possibility that they might be associated with asthma. Some people exhibit these symptoms while others do not. If you find your loved ones suffering from any of the following symptoms, consult a doctor immediately:

* Shortness of breath
* Tightness in chest
* Wheezing – a whistle sound while inhaling and exhaling
* Coughing that lasts for a long time
* Coughing while laughing or during exercise

Asthma patients should carry an inhaler with them at all times. They should stay away from asthma triggers as much as possible. If someone is suffering from an asthma attack and they do not have an inhaler with them, they should try to sit up straight and inhale and exhale deeply. If they are near something that’s a trigger for their asthma, they should immediately get away from it. In case coughing does not stop, they should seek medical help immediately, advises physician Kenneth Rebong.

In a new article written in layman’s terms, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Leonard Marchinski informs about Upper Extremity Orthopedics and surgery.


The conditions that are discussed require special care from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hand and upper extremity is broad terminology that includes the functionality of different body parts from your hand to your shoulder, such as joints, bones, ligaments, blood vessels, tendons, soft tissues, and various nerves. These regions of your body are more often afflicted than any other parts because they are heavily exposed to external factors on a daily basis, for and during the performance of many day-to-day chores. Your hand can be adversely affected due to multiple reasons that can cause severe pain in your body. If not treated by an orthopaedic physician, your hand can ultimately stop functioning.

Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski is providing his thoughts on this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/ To understand the causes and symptoms of hand and upper extremity health issues, as well as effects and treatments, keep on reading.

1. Tingling Hands
This is a common symptom that can get worse to the extent that you may end up losing sleep, resulting in insomnia. It often begins slowly and temporarily which is why you may ignore it as a harmless feeling. The reason why your hands may tingle is because of the pressure generated on your nerves due to some severe nerve injury, stress injury, toxic intake, viral or bacterial infection, and diabetes. In some cases, the tingling in hands can be extreme, episodic, or chronic. Along with tingling, your hands can be itchy and numb as well.

2. Numbness
Numbness of your hands is often accompanied by tingling and itchiness. Many consider it as a result of CTS – carpal tunnel syndrome – a compression of a median nerve in your wrist, where it passes through a tunnel. While this may be true for some cases, not every other person with numb hands may have CTS. Many other reasons can contribute to numb hands as well. For instance, numb hands can be a result of a compressed nerve due to compression neuropathy. Muscles that are part of the compressed nerve can become weak and twitchy. Another common reason for your numb hands could be an injury, compromised blood vessels, thickened tendons or connective tissues, or ganglion cysts.

Some other reasons that may cause numbness in your hand are as follows:
* Toxic metal exposure
* Brachial plexus injury
* Amyloidosis
* Raynaud’s disease
* Side effects of chemotherapy
* Lyme disease
* Peripheral neuropathy
* Stroke
* Vitamin deficiency
* Vasculitis

3. Arthritis
If you are suffering from arthritis, then it can give rise to bone spurs which may cause pressure on your hand nerves. This may further result in numbness or tickling in your hands and other parts of your body such as wrists and elbows.

4. Pressure on the Neck
You may not know it, but the nerves in your hands and forearms have roots in your neck. If the pressure is produced on the nerves of your neck, the pain can shoot all the way through your hand, wrist, and shoulder.
Several diseases, tumors, infections, and abnormalities related to the spinal cord can cause pressure on the spinal cord and may result in pain in your hand. Decreased reflexes in your arm and forearm may also be caused due to a high-level pressure in your neck nerves. At times, a nerve may be susceptible to pressure in one or multiple parts of the body. Odds are that a nerve is compressed in your neck, which may further affect your hand or arm. This condition is known as “double crush”. When one part of the body suffers from pressure, usually other parts of the body become more susceptible to pressure as well. Therefore, pressure on your neck can easily spike pressure in your hands and cause them to become numb.

The conditions that are discussed in detail above require special care and attention from your orthopedic doctor. When it comes to surgical treatments, each case is different and can’t be treated necessarily like other cases. Some of the most common hand conditions that may require you to consider orthopedic treatments are:

* Ganglion cyst
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Hand arthritis
* Wrist/ hand fractures
* Dupuytren’s contracture

If you are suffering from any illness mentioned here, consider the treatment of orthopedics as soon as practicable.

Prolift Injuries: Years Later…Pudendal and Obturator Neuralgia

Dr. Greg Vigna

Prolift injuries have led to thousands of women suffering from chronic neuromuscular problems including pudendal and obturator neuralgia.

I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain for years from direct muscle damage and are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pelvic organ prolapse was surgically treated in thousands of women with the Prolift device marketed by Ethicon, Inc. despite a lack of long-term follow up studies regarding safety. The results are foreseeable as now there are thousands of women with chronic neuromuscular problems including hip adductor myalgia (groin pain), pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome.

The Prolift device used for anterior compartment repair is different compared to the Pinnacle and Uphold devices produced by Boston Scientific, Inc. used for anterior prolapse in that the four arms of the Prolift that anchor the device are placed through the obturator membrane and pierce the hip adductor muscles and the obturator internis muscle. This will cause chronic hip adductor myalgia, but overtime may cause catastrophic pain syndrome from nerve damage. The Boston Scientific devices Pinnacle and Uphold device implant directly into the sacrospinous ligament which tend to cause acute or direct pudendal nerve injuries because the pudendal nerve runs adjacent to or behind the sacrospinous ligament.

Dr. Greg Vigna, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and damages expert states, "The clinical outcomes from the Prolift is foreseeable by their design and have played out in the literature in that there may be anatomic success with supporting prolapsed organs. The neuromuscular injuries are numerous."

Dr. Marc Possover, world authority on mesh related neurological complications in Europe, in 2011 published an observational study of 95 patients who presented to him with neurological issues from prolapse surgery. Five patients presented with pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve injury from transobturator slings and these patients presented with delayed pain, months to years after implantation. Similarly, complications from the Prolift were related to injuries to the sacral plexus and/or obturator nerve, along with pudendal pain, with 11 out of 13 patients with delayed onset of pain.

Dr. Vigna states, “I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain in the hips related to hip adductor myalgia for years from direct muscle damage and when their pain changes as the device contracts pulling on nerves causing injuries such as pudendal neuralgia and/or obturator neuralgia, they are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately. Future care for hip adductor myalgia is oral medications and physical therapy, in contrast to nerve related complications that require complete mesh removal, decompressive nerve surgery, neuromodulation, physical therapy, and Botox."

Orange Juice research by Don Karl Juravin

Orange Juice research by Don Karl Juravin

Don Karl Juravin

Don Karl Juravin

JURAVIN RESEARCH found "natural" or "fresh" orange juice to be very fattening, with NO HEALTH BENEFITS, and an expensive price: 250% more than other drinks.

Orange juice is 250% more expensive, it has more sugar than coke. No health benefits of vitamin C. The consumer thinks he/she is drinking healthy juice while he/she only gains weight dramatically!”

— Don Karl Juravin

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FDA permits manufacturers in the food and drink industry to list the nutrients of natural orange juice at the time of packaging. Based on the nutrition facts label, the consumer expects to have benefited from all the claimed nutrients until it’s expired. JURAVIN RESEARCH found that while no one is lying, per se, the consumer is tricked. What fresh OJ manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes.


Answer: Your body is gaining 10 tsp of sugar and 1 oz of fat.

How is the consumer being tricked when buying orange juice marked "natural" or "fresh"?

1. Vitamin C vanishes to zero (100% of the 65 mg vitamin C vanishes).
2. Orange juice's levels of sugar are similar to a soda.
3. Orange juice must be pasteurized for longer shelf-life which destroys the nutrients in the process.
4. 16 oz fresh OJ has 223 calories while Coke has 186 calories.
5. Concentrated OJ has more Vitamin C than the expensive, fresh or natural OJ.
6. A tall glass of OJ has about 10 tsp of sugar and will add 1 oz of fat to your body.


Natural orange juice costs 2 to 3 times more than orange flavored drinks. Soft drink companies can offer a natural OJ taste and even add the artificial pulp to spare consumers from the calories and help them save money. Moreover, such flavored orange drinks are healthier than the claimed to be "fresh" or "natural" (which is NOT and will be discussed in JURAVIN RESEARCH other studies).

Moreover, Don Karl Juravin reviewed and found that added ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to a diet orange drink is more beneficial than the natural, vanishing Vitamin C. Drink manufacturers can offer these health benefits, but as long as consumers continue to pay double or triple for "fresh" juice, why should they?


We found evidence of decreasing Vitamin C levels from bottling to the moment of the consumer’s first sip; by the expiration date, the Vitamin C has completely vanished. What fresh orange juice manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes. This means that Vitamin C on the label has no more value.

The clinical trial compared the REAL available Vitamin C content of reconstituted (concentrated) frozen orange juice at preparation vs. "freshly squeezed" orange juices. The lab bought orange juice from local retailers and stored at optimal refrigeration. They analyzed the juices for reduced and oxidized Vitamin C content at the time of purchase; the lab re-analyzed 3 times per week for 4 to 5 weeks
Our research found that many claim The Recommended Daily Dose of Vitamin C to be 60 mg a day while much higher volume is advised by doctors; natural orange juice labels' claims are for 100% RDA of Vitamin C in every glass.


* Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice *
Initial Vitamin C: 27 to 65 mg
By expiration date: 0 to 25 mg
Vitamin C lost: 45 to 65 mg
Vanished Vitamin C: 100%

* Frozen Orange Juice *
Initial Vitamin C: 85 mg
By expiration date: 39 to 46 mg
Vitamin C lost: 40 to 47 mg
Vanished Vitamin C: up to 55%


Assuming that every "fresh" orange juice claims to have 60 mg of Vitamin C "in the bottle," the lab found only 27 mg on the first "freshness" date. This confirmed that 33 mg had already decomposed and oxidized (vanished) during the bottling process. Moreover, by the expiration date, there was almost no viable Vitamin C remaining.


Natural and synthetic L-ascorbic acid are chemically identical There are no known differences in their biological activity. Interestingly enough, a study found that Vitamin C in a synthetic ascorbic acid form is slightly superior to the Vitamin C content in natural orange juice, based on blood levels of ascorbic acid. There is no difference based on ascorbic acid in leukocytes (white blood cells).

Therefore, the added synthetic Vitamin C to an orange flavored drink has a greater benefit than naturally occurring Vitamin C.

Dr. Gregory Jantz Discusses the Potential Link Between Hypoglycemia and Depression

Dr. Gregory Jantz

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For decades, Dr. Gregory Jantz has studied hundreds of patient disorders to help them arrive at a healthy resolution using his unique approach to care. Through whole-person care, which considers elements like nutrition and physical health, Dr. Jantz was able to draw a connection between depression and hypoglycemia.

Dr. Gregory Jantz pioneered his “whole-person care” approach after encountering countless patients who were unable to find relief from disorders through prescription medication alone. The one-size-fits-all approach to medicine often left his patients with a new but equally uncomfortable feeling or else failed to resolve their disorder in the slightest. Dr. Gregory Jantz’ vision for healthy living covers many lifestyle elements, and so he developed whole-person care to discover the root source of issues and help others arrive at a balance in emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Dr. Jantz encourages healthy eating and often shares insight into how poor nutritional habits can contribute to existing disorders or create new ones.

“In a whole-person approach to treatment, the entire body is recognized as an important
component in depression,” says Dr. Gregg Jantz. “The whole-person approach accepts the
body as a complex organism and looks for systemic reasons for depression.”

Studying the body’s various nutritional needs, Dr. Jantz became aware of a link between low blood sugar and feelings of depression. Glucose (a form of sugar) is the body’s main source of fuel and is produced when we consume carbs, starches, and sugars. During digestion, the fuel is absorbed into the bloodstream or else stored in the liver as glycogen. Hypoglycemia happens when the amount of sugar in our blood doesn’t equal what’s needed to fuel the body’s activities.

From this condition arises mental fog, fatigue, weakness, confusion and more, which can all contribute to feelings of depression. While many people believe their lifestyle habits or past events have caused depression (and they may in fact be inciting factors), most don’t think to consider their diet. Dr. Gregory Jantz encountered too many patients that didn’t understand their nutrition, specifically their low blood sugar, was a potential cause of depression.

The abundance of food in our country often leads to self-medication, causing people to eat an excess of fatty and high-sugar foods. When this happens, the bloodstream is flooded with a surplus of fuel and usually causes a severe crash. The temporary relief or comfort that food brings quickly fades into low blood sugar crashes and symptoms of depression.

Dr. Gregory Jantz argues that depression can often be treated by helping the body correcting any nutritional deficiencies. He advocates healthier sleeping patterns, limiting calories and fatty foods, and avoiding caffeine as a source of energy.

“Relief from depression is a lot more attainable than most people know,” says Dr. Gregory Jantz. “Watching what you eat, getting a little exercise, and making sure to get out in the sun every now and then can have a tremendous impact on your well-being.”

Rocio Moustafa shares professional insight into antisocial personality disorder

Rocio Moustafa 4

Specialist behavioral expert Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at the condition known as antisocial personality disorder.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With more than 200,000 cases diagnosed in the United States each year, antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition primarily characterized by a disregard for other people. An expert on behavior, mood, cognition, and perception from Southern California, Rocio Moustafa takes a closer look at those most likely to be affected, the symptoms, and the available treatment options when considering antisocial personality disorder.

"While antisocial personality disorder may begin to show symptoms, including risky and impulsive behavior, lying, and law-breaking, in childhood, the condition cannot be formally diagnosed until either adolescence or adulthood," explains Moustafa, who's currently based in the City of Los Angeles, the most populous city in California with an estimated population of four million.

Rocio Moustafa has also previously worked in Ventura, California, with both Los Angeles and Ventura known across the United States for their Mediterranean-like climate and rich cultures. "Individuals with antisocial personality disorder often tend to demonstrate, for example, a lack of regard for either their own safety or the safety of others around them," she explains, "as well as a tendency to lie, break laws, and act impulsively."

While symptoms may lessen with age, Moustafa reveals that antisocial personality disorder is considered a chronic condition which can last for decades, or, indeed, be lifelong. "Treatment may begin with talk therapy," she explains, "coupled with additional support for family members affected by their loved one's often extremely troubling and problematic personality disorder and its symptoms."

Requiring a medical diagnosis, those with antisocial personality disorder may experience any one or more of a large number of further behaviors and symptoms. These include, according to Moustafa, antisocial behavior, aggression, hostility, irritability, irresponsibility, deceitfulness, and manipulativeness, as well as physical substance abuse or dependence. "Their mood will often be one of anger, boredom, or general discontent," she adds.

"Family therapy, behavior therapy, and psychotherapy are all recommended forms of treatment for antisocial personality disorder," suggests Moustafa, wrapping up, "provided by either a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist, or a combination of the two."

Rocio Moustafa, from Los Angeles, California, is a behavioral expert specializing in antisocial personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and passive-dependent personality disorder. She also specializes in sleep conditions, gambling addiction and its consequences, extreme or debilitating fears and phobias—including hemophobia and traumatophobia—and further health and wellness complaints tied to cognition, perception, and mood.

Top Healthcare Mergers of 2018 with Himachal Mukhopadhyay

Himachal Mukhopaadhyay

Healthcare mergers are becoming ever more popular. Himachal Mukhopadhyay discusses some of the top mergers of 2018.

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — While we might one quarter of the way through the new year already, it’s important to acknowledge all that happened in the previous year with regards to healthcare mergers. Throughout the whole of 2018, the healthcare industry – in particular the finance sector – saw a hefty increase in mergers as both insurers and providers sought to pool resources in order to achieve greater scale and provide more cost-effective treatment across the board. And while this strategy is set to continue across the board in 2018, we, with the help of industry expert Himachal Mukhopadhyay wanted to highlight some of the biggest and move pertinent mergers of 2018.

Advocate Health Care and Aurora Medical Health Care

Two giants of the midwestern healthcare system, Advocate and Aurora made plans to merge in late 2017, and in the spring of 2018 the merger was complete. According to Himachal Mukhopadhyay this merger has created a new system which now employs over 70,000 people and has generated huge amounts of new revenue. One of the aspects which streamlined the process was the two giants agreeing to use the electronic health record system, allowing both healthcare systems to easily share information.


While this particular deal hasn’t gone through yet, it’s currently waiting for the go-ahead from a federal judge. After months of reviews from relevant agencies and state bodies, the pharmacy chain and the insurance company finally got the green light and closed on the merger. According to Himachal Mukhopadhyay, this merger is a landmark in healthcare – the reason being the enormous $70 billion price tag attached to it, as well as the significant impact which it is going to have on healthcare. It’s expected that the scope of the merger will influence other companies to consider similar integrations.

The Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Lahey Health

Both based in Massachusetts, these two healthcare systems received the green light to merge in October. It’s big news for the state, as this new system comprising 13 hospitals is expected to provide $71 million in care to communities which previous lacked any regular health service or infrastructure. Looking ahead to the future, it’ll be interesting to see how this merger plays out across the board towards the end of 2019.

Cigna and Express Scripts

After receiving approval from the State of New Jersey, Cigna and Express Scripts sealed their merger deal on December 18. The merger, which saw Cigna Corp acquire Express Scripts, was one of the largest of its kind, totaling over $67 billion. The deal gives Cigna more control and will allow it to lower the cost of prescription drugs for customers.

Dr. Cletus Roy Georges explains more about stress urinary incontinence

Dr. Cletus Roy Georges

Urology specialist Cletus Roy Georges, MD reveals more about stress urinary incontinence and the associated condition known as 'overactive bladder.'

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stress urinary incontinence is a condition wherein which urine leaks out with sudden pressure on the bladder and urethra, according to the Urology Care Foundation, a 22,000-strong member organization committed to advancing urology research and education, headquartered in the community of Linthicum in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. A urology specialist with decades of experience in the field, Dr. Cletus Roy Georges explains more about the issue and the associated condition known as 'overactive bladder.'

"In mild cases, the pressure which causes stress urinary incontinence may be the result of sudden forceful activities, such as sneezing or exercise, as well as coughing or laughing," explains Dr. Georges, an experienced urology specialist based in Orlando, Florida.

Also known as 'SUI,' stress urinary incontinence is a particularly common bladder problem among female patients. "Although occurring rather less frequently in men, male patients may be affected by SUI, too," adds Dr. Georges.

In more severe cases, patients may experience the effects of stress urinary incontinence when enduring even routine, non-forceful, day-to-day activities such as walking, standing up, or bending over. "The result," explains Dr. Georges, "can range from a few drops of leaked urine to enough to soak through a patient's clothes."

Often associated with another common bladder problem, known as 'overactive bladder' or 'OAB,' those with the latter condition typically experience an urgent need to urinate which they can't control. "The main difference, however, between stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder," Dr. Georges explains, "is anatomical."

"That's because," he continues, "stress urinary incontinence is a strictly urethral problem, while overactive bladder is a problem centered around the bladder itself."

Many people with stress urinary incontinence, Dr. Georges goes on to reveal, also suffer from overactive bladder. "This is known," he says, "as 'mixed incontinence.'"

Male patients are more likely to suffer from overactive bladder than stress urinary incontinence. "Where stress urinary incontinence is an issue in male patients," explains Dr. Georges, "it is often due to prostate cancer surgery, or damage or injury to the pelvic nerve."

In the United States, around one in three women will likely suffer from stress urinary incontinence at some point in their life, according to the Urology Care Foundation. "Established more than three decades ago, the foundation is now a leading advocate in urologic health in the United States and globally, uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of urology specialists such as myself," says Dr. Georges of the organization.

Becoming more prevalent with age, predominantly affecting those aged 60-65 and above, therapeutic options available to address stress urinary incontinence include behavioral modification and pelvic floor exercises, as well as surgical intervention, according to Dr. Georges. "With regards to overactive bladder and urge incontinence, meanwhile," he adds, wrapping up, "further to behavioral modification, other treatment options include InterStim therapy, Botox, pharmacological intervention, and percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation."

Cletus Roy Georges, MD graduated from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan with a bachelor's degree in zoology with a biomedical option in 1987. Georges subsequently attended Weill Cornell University Medical College in New York City, graduating in 1991 and completing his residency in urology at Chicago's Northwestern University McGaw Medical Center in 1997. Shortly after that, urology physician Dr. Georges started his practice in Sebring, Florida before relocating to Orlando, where he remains settled today.

(4/19/2019, Pittsburgh, PA): The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) was honored last week to join the coalition representing the National Business Inclusion Consortium (NBIC), a coalition of the nation's leading business organizations representing diverse communities. NaVOBA strives to maximize marketplace and supply chain access and competitiveness for America’s Veteran’s and Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprises (VBEs/SDVBEs) through certification, advocacy, outreach, education and recognition.

NaVOBA and the NBIC share symbiotic goals to advocate for the business interests of a diverse range of people. NaVOBA also aligns with the NBIC’s desired outcome of parity in cross-segment diversity and inclusion initiatives in corporate America, and we actively strive to collaborate across diverse business communities and advocate for the advancement of policies that support the growth of diverse-owned companies. Including the perspective from NaVOBA’s Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprises®, Board of Directors, Founding Partners and Corporate Allies ensures that the veteran’s entrepreneurship community is represented in accomplishing the NBIC mission of inclusion across the diverse business community.

“NaVOBA applauds the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) for its pioneering work to create collaboration across the diverse business community,” said NaVOBA President Matthew Pavelek. “Inclusion of the Veteran’s Community ensures that all diverse business communities are represented.”

NaVOBA’s Veteran’s Business Enterprise of the Year® awards have celebrated the incredible diversity of America’s military entrepreneur community. Veterans are literally everybody. They come from every walk of life that makes America great. The common tie that connects all these unique individuals, however, resides with the fact that for the last four decades each and every one of the brave Americans have volunteered to serve our nation in uniform. NaVOBA was honored to collaborate with our friends at the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the first ever LGBT Veteran’s Business Enterprise of the Year® as part of the LGBTUnity Conference in Philadelphia last year and we’re excited to collaborate again for this year’s event.
