New Q-Care in-store clinic opens in Maryland ShopRite

BY Antoinette Alexander

BALTIMORE, Md. — The new ShopRite of Howard Park celebrated on Oct. 11 the grand opening of Q-Care health clinic, a first of its kind in Maryland for a Federally-Qualified Health Center.

The Q-Care health clinic is managed by Park West Health Care System in partnership with nonprofit UpLift Solutions.

In Q-Care clinics, family nurse practitioners provide services for common ailments and look to connect patients, both adults and children, to primary care physicians in their network.

“Our goal is to help all people access quality health care. When patients enter our in-store Q-Care clinics without health insurance or the means to pay for health care services, there is often a benefit bank office available that offers electronic assistance to apply for medicaid, medicare, SNAP and additional benefits. The benefit bank assists individuals in applying for public benefits so that everyone can receive the health care options they need to live a healthy life,” UpLift Solutions states on its website.

BY Michael Johnsen

PHOENIX — The Tummy Company on Monday announced the formation of a scientific advisory board composed of gastroenterology and pharmaceutical specialists to provide oversight of the new liquid antacid Relief OTC.
 
Headed by Adam Harris, assistant professor of medicine at Brown University, the group’s mission will be to bring scientific and clinical insights pertaining to heartburn research and relief in order to help guide product development. 
 
“As Relief OTC expands its reach into heartburn sufferers’ medicine cabinets across the United States, we are highly aware of the importance of staying connected with the latest developments in the field,” said Jim Marini, president of The Tummy Company. “This group of distinguished professionals brings years of experience and a wellspring of knowledge to our team as we continue to gain momentum in the heartburn relief category.”
 
In addition to Harris, Relief OTC advisory board members include Barry Wiss, a 28-year gastroenterology veteran, and Mindi Fynke, president/CEO of EHIM, one of the 25 largest pharmacy benefit managers in the United States. 
 
Hitting the shelves of CVS and Walgreens, among other retailers, in late May, the orange crème-flavored Relief OTC is available in 4-oz. and larger 12-oz. bottles. In addition to food and drug stores, the product in the blue-and-white bottle can be found on Amazon and drugstore.com.
