Attain Individual Health Goals with IDLife

The initials IDlife stand for Individualized Design Life. It is a health and fitness company that aims to revolutionize the industry by making a customized nutrition plan for each client. It was founded on the belief that no two individuals have the same nutritional needs. Their mantra, therefore, is to create unique nutritional plans for each person. With an unending commitment to quality, they aim to offer their clients the highest quality products available in the market and the best programs to enable them to achieve their health goals.

In July 2017, IDLife founder, chairman, and chief executive officer Logan Stout announced a new partnership with Garmin. The latter is a technology company which specializes in the development high-quality GPS devices. They are also involved in the development of wearable fitness equipment. Perhaps in anticipation of this deal, IDLife added the option for its customers to purchase Garmin Vivo fitness tracker from its site earlier in the summer. The Garmin Vivo fitness tracker has been synchronized to work with IDLife’s IDWellness app. Together; these two applications will enable clients to track the effects of their physical exercise and also to calculate their nutritional needs. The two companies have been long committed to the enhancement of their client’s health through the development of high-quality health products. With different specialties, they have taken a holistic approach to healthcare. Garmin produces technology-based health products while IDLife concentrates more on the nutritional part.

In founding IDLife, Logan Stout sought to create a difference in the health and nutrition industry. He set out to set his company apart by shunning the one-fits-size-all approach that most businesses in this sector seem to have taken. The health supplements created by the company are unique and customized to suit each client’s needs. To ensure the achievement of this quality, IDLife subjects its customers to a HIPPA compliant assessment. This evidence-based assessment takes into account a person’s body chemistry to develop supplements that are suited specifically to such factors. This has made IDLife perhaps the best health and fitness company in the market today since each client can be assured that their health needs will be taken into account before being offered a supplement. The deal with Garmin will further enhance the service provision at IDLife, all to the benefit of the client.

Clay Siegall Believe in the Power of Collaboration to Improve Cancer Treatment Options

Inspirey published the interview, “Dr. Clay Siegall—CEO, Seattle Genetics” to show the inspiration of the targeted cancer therapy hero. Dr. Siegall is the co-founder, President, and CEO of Seattle Genetics. Seattle Genetics is a biotech company that creates targeted cancer therapy drugs that use antibodies and cell-killing agents to target tumors. The drugs are particularly focused in treating Hodgkin lymphoma and relapsed systemic anaplastic lymphoma.

He believes a powerful aspect of the business is through collaboration with other industry leaders, particularly oncology drug development companies. Through the collaboration, Seattle Genetics’ technology allows them to become more innovative with new approaches to help other patients.

Through the strong leadership of Dr. Clay Siegall, Seattle Genetics has grown into one of the leaders in the cancer research niche. They have continued to expand their list of drugs and have the first FDA approved ADC. Dr. Siegall seeks to end the reign of the older cancer treatment options like the systemic chemotherapy.

In fact, the dire effects of chemotherapy was part of the inspiration that led Dr. Siegall to starting the company in the first place. He watched a family member go through cancer treatment with chemotherapy, which had brutal side effects of severe anemia which nearly led to the family member’s death. He saw that the only options available were chemotherapy and invasive surgeries and he realized he needed to change that.

Yet, he had been fascinated with diseases and the ability of technology and medicine to restore health since studying zoology at the University of Maryland. Later, he went on to gain his doctorate in genetics from George Washington University.

Dr. Siegall has a long career in the research field. Prior to starting Seattle Genetics, Dr. Siegall was the senior researcher at Bristol Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute. He also worked with the National Cancer Institute and is currently on the Board of Directors for Alder BioPharmaceuticals.

Dr. Siegal has also published more than 70 papers and has 15 patents. As the leader in the capital-raising activites, Dr. Siegall was able to gain $675 million of financing for Seattle Genetics. They have developed a diverse array of drugs in the pipeline, with the mainstay of ADCETRIS which was FDA approved in 2011.

Leveraging Public-Private Partnerships To Improve Access To Basic Services In Brazil

Government grants can accelerate access to clean water and sanitation services. The Brazilian government recently announced concessions in collaboration with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. Stakeholders such as Edison Carlos of Tata Brazil welcomed the move. He stated that you could expect better services from the improved management of resources.

Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure specialist, also noted that there would be decreased levels of waste. State agencies are in charge of water and sanitation services. They can improve their service delivery by collaborating with the private sector. Each has their strong points, which can complement the other to achieve efficiency. The bank will create custom plans for the implementation based on the unique needs of each location.

Water loss was identified as one of the leading causes of loss of revenue by the state agencies. Water that does not get to the intended customer cannot be billed. The private sector has access to larger pools of funding and the latest technology. This makes them ideal partners in the development of sewage networks and sanitation facilities. The technology can also be used to reduce water waste and consequent loss of revenue.

The success of a state agency can be measured by the level of penetration of their services.

Felipe Montoro Jens is a management and finance executive as well as an influential business leader. He has extensive experience in the Brazilian corporate sector.

He has also held c-level management positions in countries such as the UK and Singapore. This includes positions in project management, structured and international finance, and auditing.

He is adept at helping agencies achieve efficiency and improve their bottom line. He attended Getulio Vargas Foundation where he obtained a business administration degree. He then went for further studies at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, a part of Arizona State University.
