ST. LOUIS—November 23, 2009—GenoMed® (OTC Pink Sheets GMED.PK), the Public Health Company™, announced today that it has begun partnering with St. Louis barbershops and hair salons to keep their customers from going on kidney dialysis.
GenoMed’s first partner is The Mane Event. GenoMed placed a $35 blood pressure cuff in the store over the weekend. Owner Gerald Shelton will encourage his customers to check their blood pressure while they’re waiting to be served. People with a blood pressure over 120/80 are urged to contact GenoMed. GenoMed is the only company in the world that has published it can prevent kidney failure due to high blood pressure or diabetes, provided that patients are begun on its treatment early.
Mr. Shelton said, “In my own family and my community, I’ve seen what a silent killer high blood pressure can be. It’s time for us to take charge and help each other out. I’m glad a company like GenoMed is reaching out.”
Said David Moskowitz MD FACP, GenoMed’s CEO and Chief Medical Officer, “I’m thrilled to be working with Mr. Shelton, who saw from the very beginning how useful a blood pressure machine would be for his customers.”
Dr. Moskowitz continued, “GenoMed aims to place blood pressure machines in most of the barber shops, beauty shops, and laundromats in the city and county of St. Louis—wherever people have time on their hands. It’s impossible to know your blood pressure unless you check it. And it’s impossible for blood pressure to hurt you if you treat it right. People need to get in the habit of checking their blood pressure at least once a month.”
Dr. Moskowitz ended by saying, “We’re making it easier for people with high blood pressure to find out who they are, and to control their pressure better. GenoMed takes its public health obligation very seriously. Ours is the only paper in the medical literature showing that most kidney failure can be prevented. Even if nobody else in healthcare or public health will take the practical steps to eradicate kidney failure, we will.”
