TORONTO – Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Medivolve, Inc. (“Medivolve”) (NEO:MEDV; OTC:COPRF; FRA:4NC) is pleased to announce the launch of a partnership between its wholly owned subsidiary, Collection Sites, LLC, and Heidi Powell, fitness and transformation expert from ABC’s ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ show. Furthering its dedication to flatten the curve against the novel coronavirus, Collection Sites and Heidi Powell have launched two COVID-19 testing centers in Austin, Texas and Tempe, Arizona providing convenient access to rapid antibody and antigen tests. As part of the partnership, Heidi Powell has paid an upfront fee to launch the test centre in exchange for a small royalty. Through this partnership, Collection Sites customers nationwide will have access to Heidi’s suite of nutritional programs, supplements, and overall wellness resources.
About the Heidi Powell Partnership
Collection Sites has leased COVID-19 testing facilities in the parking lots of two shopping centers: Barton Creek Square Mall in Austin, TX and Arizona Mills in Tempe, AZ. “I am proud to serve the families in our backyard and in the Austin/Tempe areas through our connection with Collection Sites,” explains Heidi. “We hope this gesture will help to keep families safe and healthy as we all endeavor to care for one another during this challenging time.”
Testing sites will now be available for those seeking fast, available, and accurate testing for themselves and their loved ones in the weeks and months ahead. The first location opened in January 2021 with daily testing capacity of 150 tests per site. Customer can use insurance or pay out-of-pocket USD between $59 to $139, depending on the test.
“We are excited to see Collection Sites continue to expand its footprint, now with over 700 contracted locations secured across the United States,” says Mr. Doug Sommerville, CEO of Medivolve, Inc. “Each site offers a comprehensive COVID-19 testing solution, including insurance covered antigen, PCR, and antibody tests. By helping provide greater access to testing and making testing part of a regular shopping routine, we can help society flatten the curve.”
The pop-up labs are managed by Las Vegas based company Collection Sites, LLC and powered by Alcala Testing and Analysis Services, a CLIA-licensed laboratory based in San Diego, California. Appointments and payments will be handled through an online portal: www.testbeforeyougo.com.
Taking The Fight A Step Further – Healthy Minds & Bodies
“The fight against COVID-19 is more than just testing and a vaccine,” says Heidi. “To me, three priorities outline the path forward: control and suppress the spread of the virus; strengthen and maintain health in our bodies; and support each other to stay safe, healthy and well,”
With so many organizations requiring tests for various reasons including traveling or playing sports even if individuals aren’t experiencing symptoms, it became obvious that consumers were looking for easy and accurate testing options. As an authority in the health and wellness space, I feel it is my responsibility to offer a quality solution and quickly partnered with the team at Collection Sites to deliver that to consumers.
Earlier this year, Heidi and Chris Powell began offering 30 days of free workouts and recipes in their exclusive Transform App Users Community on Facebook. “My mission is to support Americans’ desires to remain healthy during the pandemic and help meet their individual health and wellness needs,” says Heidi. “Through Collection Sites and Transform HQ, we’re committed to helping people take control of their personal health journeys by providing them with tailored solutions that go beyond testing.”
For Collection Sites customers, Heidi is graciously extending multiple offerings such as:
- 30-Day Free Trial to The Transform App – wellness and transformation app including: meal plans & grocery lists; macro tracking; hydration tracking; personalized daily workouts; weekly motivation; smart troubleshooting; and a built-in support system.
- 20% Off Sitewide on Transform HQ – nutritional vitamins, supplements, energy and immune boosting products from the Wellness Line, Perform Workout Line, and Weight Loss Line.
