The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center Announces Adult Stem Cell Public Seminars in Sarasota, Florida

Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) April 18, 2015

The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center announces a series of free public seminars on the use of adult stem cells for various degenerative and inflammatory conditions. They will be provided by Dr. Thomas A. Gionis, Surgeon-in-Chief and Dr. Nia Smyrniotis, Medical Director.

The seminars will be held on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 1:00pm and 3:00pm; and Wednesday, May 6, 2015, at 1:00pm and 3:00pm at the Hyatt Regency, 1000 Boulevard of the Arts, Sarasota, FL 34236. Please RSVP at (561) 331-2999, all events are by reservation only.

The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center (Miami; Boca Raton; Orlando; The Villages; Sarasota), along with sister affiliates, the Irvine Stem Cell Treatment Center (Irvine; Westlake Village, California) and the Manhattan Regenerative Medicine Medical Group (Manhattan, New York), abide by approved investigational protocols using adult adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) which can be deployed to improve patients’ quality of life for a number of chronic, degenerative and inflammatory conditions and diseases. ADSCs are taken from the patient’s own adipose (fat) tissue (found within a cellular mixture called stromal vascular fraction (SVF)). ADSCs are exceptionally abundant in adipose tissue. The adipose tissue is obtained from the patient during a 15 minute mini-liposuction performed under local anesthesia in the doctor’s office. SVF is a protein-rich solution containing mononuclear cell lines (predominantly adult autologous mesenchymal stem cells), macrophage cells, endothelial cells, red blood cells, and important Growth Factors that facilitate the stem cell process and promote their activity.

ADSCs are the body’s natural healing cells – they are recruited by chemical signals emitted by damaged tissues to repair and regenerate the body’s injured cells. The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center only uses Adult Autologous Stem Cells from a person’s own fat – No embryonic stem cells are used; and No bone marrow stem cells are used. Current areas of study include: Emphysema, COPD, Asthma, Heart Failure, Heart Attack, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Inflammatory Myopathies, and degenerative orthopedic joint conditions (Knee, Shoulder, Hip, Spine). For more information, or if someone thinks they may be a candidate for one of the adult stem cell protocols offered by the Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center, they may contact Dr. Gionis or Dr. Smyrniotis directly at (561) 331-2999, or see a complete list of the Center’s study areas at: http://www.MiamiStemCellsUSA.com.

Also, you can listen and call into our radio show, The Stem Cell Show, hosted by Dr. Gionis worldwide on KABC.com (“Listen Live” at 7pm EST) or the KABC app – available on the App Store or Google Play.

About the Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center: The Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center, along with sister affiliates, the Irvine Stem Cell Treatment Center and the Manhattan Regenerative Medicine Medical Group, is an affiliate of the California Stem Cell Treatment Center / Cell Surgical Network (CSN); we are located in Miami, Boca Raton, Orlando, The Villages, and Sarasota, Florida. We provide care for people suffering from diseases that may be alleviated by access to adult stem cell based regenerative treatment. We utilize a fat transfer surgical technology to isolate and implant the patient’s own stem cells from a small quantity of fat harvested by a mini-liposuction on the same day. The investigational protocols utilized by the Miami Stem Cell Treatment Center have been reviewed and approved by an IRB (Institutional Review Board) which is registered with the U.S. Department of Health, Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP); and our studies are registered with Clinicaltrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).

OConnor House Becomes Sandra Day OConnor Institute

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

O’Connor House is now the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute. O’Connor House, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to solving complex issues through civil discourse and collaborative action. In recognition of the need to continue to expand and enhance its endeavors, the Board of Directors voted to change the name of the organization from O’Connor House to the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute.

Sarah Suggs, President and CEO said, “The O’Connor Institute is a significant step forward and exciting chapter in our organization’s life. We continue Sandra Day O’Connor’s important work to advance society, inspired by her leadership, intellect and vision.”

The mission of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute is to:

    Continue Sandra Day O’Connor’s lifetime work of solving important social, economic and political problems through civil dialogue and civic action.
    Create an environment where important policy decisions are made through a process of civil discussion, critical analysis of facts and informed participation of all citizens.
    Build consensus and collaborate on state and national levels to help solve complex issues.

“Given the polarized, highly politicized approach to current issues, the non-partisan O’Connor Institute offers civil discourse and collaborative problem solving to constructively address the complex challenges that face our state and nation,” stated Peter M. Hayes, Chairman of the Board.

The Sandra Day O’Connor Institute current programmatic areas include Social Justice, Public Policy and Civics Education. In addition, the history of Sandra Day O’Connor’s extraordinary life is being documented and preserved. Plans also call for a future location of the O’Connor Institute to include a civic center, auditorium, educational classrooms, internships, collaborative work space, public forums and debates, library, tours, a permanent exhibit honoring the lifetime work of Sandra Day O’Connor and administrative offices.

The historic O’Connor House itself will remain an asset of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute. The adobe home was relocated to the campus of the Arizona Historical Society and became a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization in 2009.

The work begun by O’Connor House which will be continued by the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute includes:

Public Policy: Providing a greater understanding of critical issues through thoughtful discussion, critical analysis of facts and informed participation of all citizens.
SAFE Action Project: Delivering hospitality industry training developed by O’Connor House to combat the commercial sexual exploitation of children (child sex trafficking).
Social Justice: Creating solutions and collaborative partnerships to reduce domestic violence against women and children.
Civics Education: promoting civics education, particularly in middle schools, including the use of iCivics.org, an online education portal founded by Sandra Day O’Connor as a free civics resource for teachers and students.
Distinguished Speakers Series: Presenting national and international leaders and luminaries who foster the ideals of statesmanship

Sandra Day O’Connor made history in 1981 when President Ronald Reagan nominated her as an associate justice and first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, where she served 25 years until her retirement in 2006. Prior to the U.S. Supreme Court, Sandra Day O’Connor had previously worked in the Arizona Attorney General’s office, in the Arizona State Senate as Majority Leader, later as a judge in the Maricopa County Superior Court and the Arizona Court of Appeals before her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Peter M. Hayes is Chairman of the Board and Sarah E. Suggs serves as President and CEO. Board Members include Joseph P. Anderson, Tracy Bame, Deborah Bateman, Rich Boals, Nikal Conti, Harold Dorenbecher, Shelley Duane, John Evancevich, Leonard Gaby, Dr. Rufus Glasper, Lucia Howard, Hon. Douglas Hunt, Rick Jones, Francis Najafi, Michael Rooney, James Rose, Stephen M. Savage, Richard H. Silverman, Kim Sterling-Heflin, Gay Firestone Wray, Kari Yatkowski and Kathleen Zeider.

Bella Reina Spa Launches Top Winter Skincare Products on MiBellaReina.com

Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 30, 2014

Bella Reina Spa, the leading spa provider in Delray Beach, FL, has now launched top winter skincare products available immediately for purchase on MiBellaReina.com, giving clients nationwide the chance to replicate a luxury spa experience in the comforts of their own home throughout this winter season.

“Winter can wreak havoc on your skin. With the cold weather, you still need to exfoliate, hydrate, and treat your skin from the inside out – something that many of us forget to prioritize during the busy and frequently stressful holiday season,” said Nancy Reagan, Founder of Bella Reina Spa.

“Valuing Bella Reina Spa clients’ feedback on several of our top winter skincare products, we decided to make our top three skincare products available to clients across the country, available right on MiBellaReina.com,” continued Reagan.

The Nancy Reagan 24k Gold Collagen Face Mask, launched this past summer, provides key absorption and hydration efforts, allowing necessary nutrients and moisturizers to deeply penetrate all skin types to produce results within 10 to 20 minutes. In addition to softening and smoothing out dry skin, the mask promotes blood circulation and collagen production while simultaneously repairing cracked skin caused by harsh winter weather conditions.

For those traveling this holiday and winter season, the Nancy Reagan Skincare Flawless Drops serum is formulated with relevant lipids to help protect dehydrated skin by acting as a natural barrier towards cold winter weather to retain and seal off moisture. Intended for both morning and evening use, the serum can be applied as a face primer before makeup and sunscreen application without leaving a greasy residue.

To ward off fine lines and wrinkles often caused by holiday-related stresses and anxiety, the Nancy Reagan Skincare Face & Neck Infusion Crème delivers an intense, anti-aging face and neck treatment designed to accelerate the typical 28-day skin cycle in order to rejuvenate new, healthy skin cells and reduce flaky, dead skin.

“We have seen first-hand how our products have helped clients in person at Bella Reina Spa, and we are excited to continue providing the same high-quality skincare results to customers, whether they are offline or online,” concluded Reagan.
