Aventura, FL (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
After seeing an emotional interview by Stephanie Harmon, an elementary school teacher in the dying town of Sparkman, AR, Dr. David Moskowitz, CEO of GenoMed pledged free medical care to the adults of the town. Ms. Harmon raised $42,000 in donations from her community to allow high school seniors to attend college. The town hopes that their children will return to Sparkman and keep the town alive.
Dr. Moskowitz has pledged free use of GenoMed's "recipes" for diabetes, high blood pressure, emphysema, congestive heart failure, sickle cell disease, psoriasis, West Nile virus, and metastatic cancer for the residents of Sparkman. GenoMed finds the genes that cause disease, then uses the knowledge to improve patient outcomes. In particular, GenoMed can prevent 90% of dialysis if treatment starts early enough, before a patient has lost more than half of their kidney function. Dr. Moskowitz expects to make Sparkman the first dialysis-free town in the US.
Said Dr. Moskowitz, "We're delighted to try to make Sparkman the healthiest town in America. We're happy to help the adults of the town as much as Ms. Harmon has helped its children."
