Roberto Clemente VIP Experience Sponsored By AARP

Atlantino LLC

Organizers of the virtual Roberto Clemente VIP Experience, slated for Thursday, August 26th at 7 pm ET, announced today that AARP will be the presenting sponsor for the Roberto Clemente VIP Experience. Much of what is known about Roberto Clemente is centered on his Hall of Fame baseball career, his ethnicity, or his untimely passing while engaged in philanthropic activities. However, little attention is given to the man behind the game. Drawing from the behind-the-scenes book Clemente: The True Legacy of an Undying Hero, authored by Roberto’s late wife Vera alongside his family, this VIP Experience will showcase a conversation with several key individuals in Roberto Clemente’s life, including his sons, Luis and Roberto Jr., as well as Hall of Famers Orlando Cepeda and Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez. Bestselling Author & Motivational Speaker, Maria Marin, will also make an appearance to give a voice to Vera Clemente, who passed in 2019. Immediately following the conversation, virtual attendees will have a chance to have their questions answered by Luis Clemente during a live Q & A session from the Discover Puerto Rico offices in Old San Juan. The event will take place on August 26 th, 2021, between 7:00 and 8:00 pm ET. Registration is required to access the event. Event producers, Atlantino, will utilize the Run The World virtual gathering platform, which will allow up to 20,000 attendees to participate in this live once-in-a-lifetime experience. Each attendee will receive a special digital insignia created to commemorate the life of Roberto Clemente in time for Hispanic Heritage Month. To register for this free event, please click HERE. “This is an exciting opportunity to share with thousands of Roberto Clemente fans the life of my father, Roberto Clemente, his dreams, his goals, his passion both on and off the field. By focusing this experience on the book written by my mother and the family, it gives the family great pride to participate in this momentous occasion,” stated Luis Clemente, son of Roberto Clemente. “Roberto Clemente’s legacy is one of service, integrity, and grace. AARP is proud to sponsor the Roberto Clemente VIP Experience. He inspires us all to continue to fight so that all Latinos can live their lives with possibility.” - Yvette Peña, VP of Hispanic/Latino Audience Strategy, AARP Strategic partners, producers, and media allies for this event include Run The World, FizzyLabs, and Discover Puerto Rico.

Palm Communities

Palm Communities announces the grand opening of Cedar Glen II, an affordable housing community in Riverside, California, that will assist rent-burdened families and provide permanent supportive housing for special needs individuals. Palm’s affordable housing community supports Riverside County’s Housing First goals as an approach to successfully connect people experiencing homelessness to services and permanent housing. “Preserving and increasing the quality of life for Riverside residents is one of my top priorities,” said Jim Perry Riverside City Council, Ward 6. “Strong public and private partnerships to provide affordable housing and services are imperative to reduce and prevent homelessness in the community.

It is the fifth community in which Palm Communities and Riverside County have partnered to provide permanent supportive housing in the area.

The service-enriched community includes a clubhouse, kitchen, free computer lab, tot-lot, basketball/futsal court, and a walking circuit with exercise equipment. Additionally, residents will have access to on-site case management and connectivity to other services in the community. “California is experiencing an extreme shortage of nearly one million affordable rental housing units for low-income renters. Riverside is ramping up its efforts to meet this demand, and we are thankful to the Riverside City Council and the County Board of Supervisors for supporting the development of Cedar Glen,” said Dan Horn, President, Palm Communities. “Affordable housing is making a clear difference in the lives of our residents and improving the communities in which we build.” Palm has been developing tax credit communities in Riverside County for nearly 40 years and has partnered with the county since 2010 to provide permanent supportive housing.

LivLyme Foundation Founder Olivia Goodreau to Discuss Perils of Lyme Disease in Free Webinar Hosted by Industry-Leading Quidel Corporation

Quidel Corporation

Olivia Goodreau, who founded the LivLyme Foundation at 12 years old and has since become a widely respected advocate and national spokeswoman for Lyme disease prevention and treatment, will discuss her “journey with Lyme” and the importance of early testing as part of a webinar to be held Thursday, Aug. 19. The webinar is the latest in an ongoing series sponsored by Quidel, the California-based diagnostic health care manufacturer known for successfully developing rapid diagnostic health solutions. ______________________________________________________________________ Webinar Registration The free online educational program will take place Aug. 19 at noon EDT. Registration is available now at https://education.quidel.com/registration/2580/1/r/LD-1. You may attend the webinar by accessing the same link on or after Aug. 19 at noon EDT. ______________________________________________________________________ Now 16 years old, Goodreau founded the LivLyme Foundation in 2017 to help raise money for individuals who cannot afford their Lyme medication or doctors’ visits and to fund research to find a cure for Lyme and tick-borne diseases. She has since awarded 54 grants to children and adults ages 2-21 along with four grants to top universities to fund tick-borne disease research. Goodreau is also the inventor of TickTracker, the free global app that has over 50,000 users in multiple languages worldwide. TickTracker was selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as the “top tech tool” that is solving global health problems, beating out Oracle and IBM, among others. As part of the webinar, Goodreau will discuss her journey with Lyme, including when she became ill, the number of physicians she visited, how she was diagnosed and her passion for the importance of early testing. She will also discuss her work on the “public stage,” having presented TickTracker at the White House and having met with countless members of Congress, celebrities, scientists and governmental agencies to educate and spread awareness about tick-borne diseases. Goodreau’s webinar presentation is particularly relevant today as Lyme disease is on the rise to record numbers throughout the country and has the potential to affect as many as 476,000 citizens before the year is out. For accurate and fast testing, more and more clinicians are turning to the Sofia® 2 Lyme FIA by Quidel. This revolutionary test provides the patient and physician with indicative results within 15 minutes, as opposed to days, which has historically been the norm (and during which time organisms can spread and become systemic). It can be performed in the privacy of a doctor’s office, local clinic or even by a nurse at a children’s summer camp; and it is the only test that can get results from a simple finger prick of blood. Among those expected to attend the free Aug. 19 webinar are physicians; allied health professionals; health researchers; and representatives of physician offices, laboratories, urgent care centers, patient advocacy associations and others interested in the subject. About Quidel Corporation Quidel Corporation (Nasdaq: QDEL) is a leading manufacturer of diagnostic solutions at the point of care, delivering a continuum of rapid testing technologies that further improve the quality of health care throughout the globe. An innovator for over 40 years in the medical device industry, Quidel pioneered the first FDA-cleared point-of-care test for influenza in 1999 and was the first to market a rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen test in the U.S. Under trusted brand names, Sofia®, Solana®, Lyra®, Triage® and QuickVue®, Quidel’s comprehensive product portfolio includes tests for a wide range of infectious diseases, cardiac and autoimmune biomarkers, as well as a host of products to detect COVID-19.
