A small group of key colleagues and I have formed a new consulting business, Vivace Associates. Our target clients are all organizations concerned with the cost and efficiency of health care – health insurance companies, governments and government agencies, large employers and NGOs. “We consult on the science of plant-based substances and how they can benefit health and wellness of specific populations. We assist health organizations to develop strategies that incorporate phytosubstances into their wellness programs. And we create educational programs for medical practitioners and patients.”
A central premise of Vivace Associates is that probability of incidences of many key diseases and therefore health care costs can be significantly reduced by personal wellness programs that include properly-informed dietary and dietary supplement programs that draw heavily on the use of health-inducing plant polyphenols. I believe this premise is supported by much research previously reported in this blog.
My main activity will continue to be as a health and longevity sciences researcher continuing to generate this blog. I will serve as Chief Scientist of Vivace Associates. Should any potential conflict of interest with my scientific reporting occur in the course of consulting, I will disclose such in the blog. To the present, there has been none.
The Vivace Associates website documents What we do, Who we are, Research & Insights, Contact Information and Careers. The services provided include:
• Consulting studies and program assessments
• Project development and presentation
• Educational seminars, symposia and community outreach plans
• Conferences and speaking engagements
“We synthesize knowledge from cutting-edge scientific research on the beneficial effects of plant-based substances (phytosubstances) and apply it to health and wellness programs. We study the field and help you create and run programs which contribute to preventative medicine and reduce healthcare costs. We work with organizations concerned with the effectiveness and cost of healthcare to develop science-based strategies, which incorporate the health benefits of phytosubstances into wellness programs. And we help design and implement these programs.”
