PA Green Wellness Announces a New Greenville Office Location

PA Green Wellness, Offering Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Aesthetic Procedures, EPAT Therapies, GAINSWave Therapy, and the newly introduced NextGen PRP treatments in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The success of Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Aesthetic Procedures, and GAINSWave Therapy prompts PA Green Wellness to include a fourth location.

GREENVILLE, DE, USA, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — PA Green Wellness introduces a new office location in Greenville, DE which adds a fourth medical clinic to their family of regenerative health facilities, spanning throughout Pennsylvania and Delaware. This new location will mark the fifth expansion for the company since its inception in 2017.

With the introduction of new stem cell therapies and services, owner John Cellini notes that the company was searching for a new office location that could offer a bit more space, scenery and a sense of relaxation to their patients as they underwent consultations and therapies.

“This new location really gives people a sense of peace and serenity. I believe it will make our patients, especially those coming in for our new aesthetic treatments, feel more pampered and at ease”, states John Cellini, CEO.

Services being offered at the new Brandywine Valley location include: Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cell Aesthetic Procedures, EPAT Therapies, GAINSWave Therapy, and the newly introduced NextGen PRP treatments.

“We’re excited to roll out our NextGen PRP treatments in conjunction with our office expansion”, says Cellini. “This patented treatment is a game-changer when it comes to PRP therapy in general. Not only are the results much better, but it involves a lot less invasive treatments for our patients, which is our ultimate goal in anything we do here.”

NextGen PRP is a patented treatment that was introduced to PA Green Wellness patients in late March 2020. Many of the early adopters of this new treatment have noted that it’s more effective than traditional PRP and much less invasive, with less recovery time.

PA Green Medical will be launching a formal unveiling of their new product in the weeks to come, but in the meanwhile, patients will be welcome to schedule appointments at the new office location starting April 18th, 2020.

PA Green Wellness is a group of regenerative medicine clinics offering innovative treatments using HCTP from Predictive Biotech. Their offices can be found in Harrisburg PA, King of Prussia PA, Lewes DE, Greenville DE. To schedule your appointment call 1-888-338-6001.

Krunchie Killeen, a white-bearded pensioner, has issued 22 songs to Spotify, YouTube and other streaming services since the beginning of February this year

DUBLIN 11, DUBLIN, IRELAND, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Krunchie Killeen, a white-bearded, retired Civil Servant (actually aged 77) living in Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland, has issued 22 tracks to Spotify and YouTube (and other streaming services, viz., iTunes, Amazon, Apple Music, Google Play, Tik Tok, Deezer, Pandora, ClaroMusica, Saavn, TIDAL, iHeartRadio, Napster, Anghami, KKBox, TouchTunes) since the beginning of February of this year.

Twenty of the tracks are vocal and two are instrumental.

His Spotify Channel can be found at: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4aa3QEjxzJMWnx8mZB1SFV

His YouTube Channel can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/user/KrunchieKilleen/

He began recording his songs when prompted by a dream to start a new enterprise. The dream is recorded in his Dream Diary at https://krunchiedreams.blogspot.com/

The songs issued are:

9 Poems of James Joyce, to new airs composed by Krunchie (Bid Adieu to Girlish Days, Combing Her Long Hair, Dear Heart, Donnycarney, Goldenhair, I Hear An Army, My Love in Light Attire, Simples of the Moon, The Eyes That Mock Me)

Dawning of the Day (From the Irish “Fainne Geal An Lae”)

Battering Ram (An instrumental of a 19th century Irish tune, recalling cruel evictions)

Farewell to Poor Ireland (From the Irish “Amhran Na Tra Baine”)

The Feasting At Kincora (Recalling the glory of Brian Boru’s Feasting)

One Tea Bag (A comic song)

Pistachios (Another comic song)

River Stroll (Recalling Krunchie’s walk by the Tolka River last August)

The Great Six O (An Outrageous Poem by Krunchie, written on his 60th birthday, humorously regretting all the things he has not done during his life, to be released on 12 May 2020)

My Ginger Girl (From the Irish “Mo Chailin Rua,” tells of a traveller’s love-life in a caravan, to be released to Spotify on 29 May 2020, now available for pre-order)

My Dark Rosaleen (To be Released to Spotify on 28 May 2020, Krunchie’s new air to the old favourite patriotic song, since Krunchie was not satisfied with previous versions, such as those of Count John McCormack, Tommy Makum or John Spillane)

When Life Comes Back To Normal (From the Corona Cocoon, Krunchie looks forward to resuming normal activities, like strolling along a golden strand or around the park)

Phibsboro Suite (An Instrumental, recalling two tunes that Krunchie composed, using his tin whistle, when he was ten, but now recorded as he imagined the tunes in his head. The first of these, “The Dreary Night,” is a lullaby composed by ten-year-old Krunchie for his new-born sibling as he took his turn rocking the cradle, and the second,”A Man With A Can,” explores the option of a career as a tramp instead of the conventional wage-slave life)

Krunchie has many more tunes in his head that he intends to release over the coming months.

The songs and music are recorded in his home studio (comprising a desktop computer and software).

He has been playing with the Invincibles band in occasional gigs for about 17 years and, until the Corona virus struck, had been doing a weekly concert in Clareville Day Centre.

He has written five books, available on Amazon: “Simplified Land Titling” (which could help solve problems of undocumented titles around the world), “Transport 21 Hundred” (which presents a carbon-free transport system for the future), “Outrageous Poems” (which does what is says on the tin), “Another Person’s Poem” (which explores the dilemma he has in common with many song-writers, including John Lennon, who are unsure whether the words that come into their head are their own or something they have heard somewhere before), and “Three Little Persons” (which humorously reflects the story of the Three Little Pigs); and he has edited the “Dublin Memory Book” (which contains memoirs, memories and stories contributed by clients of Clareville Day Centre in Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland).

A selection of photos of Krunchie can be viewed and downloaded from:
https://p-ocillin.tkhcloudstorage.com/item/c3e7ed8999a2452a8cce961491f421cf

“Glossneen” is the name of Krunchie’s record label. The range of recordings so far issued under the “Glosneen” label can be found at:
https://Glossneen.blogspot.com/

Some years ago, Krunchie put on a straw boater hat, Joyce-style glasses and dickey bow, for a celebration of Bloomsday. People said he looked very like James Joyce, so he repeats the impersonation every year.

CADENA MEXICO IMPLEMENTA ACCIONES PARA REACCIONAR ANTE EL COVID19

ORGANIZACIÓN QUE AYUDA EN SITUACIONES DE CRISIS

AYUDA HUMANITARIA

Filantropo mexicano destacado

MEXICO CITY, MéXICO, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ciudad de México, 16 de abril del 2020

CADENA IMPLEMENTA ACCIONES ASERTIVAS Y COLABORATIVAS
PARA REACCIONAR ANTE EL COVID19

LANZAN KOL, MANO A MANO Y CONEXIONES CADENA: CUARENTENAS

Ciudad de México a 16 de abril 2020. El Comité de Ayuda a Desastres y Emergencias Nacionales (CADENA), asociación civil especializada en prevención, asistencia y alivio en crisis humanitarias, implementó una serie de acciones estratégicas para reaccionar y actuar ante la pandemia causada por el COVID-19, dirigida directamente a los más vulnerables en nuestro país.

Metodología para la Gestión de Iniciativas Durante Emergencias, KOL

CADENA atenderá las 24 horas del día a la población a través de llamadas (KOL Center) y un sistema inteligente de mensajería (KOL Contigo), brindando orientación médica, atención psicológica y espiritual.

A través de KOL, los usuarios podrán recibir recomendaciones médicas virtuales para posibles casos positivos de COVID-19. Aunado al apoyo psicosocial que las y los psicólogos adheridos a este proyecto brindarán, a través de información oportuna para el manejo de crisis y consejos para evitar el estrés, el pánico y la ansiedad durante la pandemia; además de contribuir en la mejora de dinámicas familiares.

De igual manera, la herramienta de comunicación KOL incorporará una sección donde brindará información de otras instituciones en lenguas indígenas sobre el COVID-19. Contará con programas de perspectiva de género, para brindar información y vincular a las usuarias que requieran reportar abusos o violencia de género; y contará con herramientas para brindar información de forma accesible a personas con discapacidad y adultos mayores.

Programa Especializado de Apoyo a Adultos Mayores

Como otra de nuestras iniciativas, CADENA creó el Programa Especializado de Apoyo a Adultos Mayores, al ser altamente vulnerables ante la pandemia. En este programa, una red de voluntarias y voluntarios se pone en contacto diariamente con los adultos mayores inscritos que no cuentan con ningún familiar, con el firme propósito de brindar apoyo emocional; apoyarlos a realizar sus compras de alimentos y medicinas; monitorear de manera constante su estado de salud, y, en caso de ser necesario, vincularlos con un especialista en telemedicina para su atención oportuna.

Adicionalmente, estos voluntarios les envían constantemente recomendaciones y actividades para hacer en el tiempo de resguardo en el hogar. Al momento, este programa cuenta con 60 adultos mayores apoyados y la idea es apoyar a más día a día.

Campaña “Mano a Mano, Protege al Personal de Salud”

En otro frente, CADENA en coordinación con Fundación Alma instauró la campaña de ayuda “Mano a Mano, Protege al Personal de Salud”, la cual consiste en recaudar donativos para garantizar que médicos, enfermeras, enfermeros y personal hospitalario cuenten con los insumos médicos para realizar su noble labor con la seguridad necesaria. Los donativos recaudados serán entregados directamente al personal de salud, constatando que lleguen a quién más los necesite.

Aunado a lo anterior, CADENA cuenta con 20 impresoras 3D, que fueron inscritas voluntariamente para elaborar mascarillas certificadas, que de igual manera serán entregadas al personal de salud que atiende a los casos confirmados de COVID-19 en el país.

Otros Esfuerzos

Como otra acción para aliviar los daños colaterales de la pandemia en nuestro país, como son la pérdida de empleos y la situación económica en general en México; CADENA a través de su equipo de voluntarios se encuentra recolectando despensas para entregar a los grupos más vulnerables que no tendrán ingresos durante esta crisis.

Finalmente, para la población en general, arrancamos el proyecto “Conexiones CADENA: Cuarentenas”, que consiste en la creación de contenidos diversos presentados por expertos. Durante los días de cuarentena, a través de nuestras cuentas de Instagram, Facebook y Zoom compartiremos experiencias, clases, conferencias, talleres e ideas para ayudar a la sociedad en general a informarse , mantenerse seguro y entretenerse con diferentes temáticas.

CADENA hace fuerte un llamado para sumarse a cada uno de sus proyectos. Con el apoyo de la sociedad, CADENA puede ayudar a más personas vulnerables ante esta pandemia.

Customer Centric Approach Yields Dividends for Cities per Building Official Bill Ondulich

William Ondulich

A focus on customer service helps municipal workers achieve more with less according to Bill Ondulich, building official.

LARGO, FL, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A successful career in the public sector requires more than careful budgeting and adherence to the ordinance.

Successful municipal employees and other government workers need to focus on delivering excellent customer service according to Building Official Bill Ondulich.

Bill Ondulich served in various roles for the City of Largo in Florida and focused on streamlining operations in a variety of associated divisions while increasing turnaround times for visitors.

At Largo, Bill Ondulich managed an operating budget of approximately $1.75 million and assumed a leadership role of over 21 employees.

Through careful leadership, Bill Ondulich transitioned a key city department to a customer-driven focus and away from a strictly procedural, rule-driven philosophy. By focusing on customer service, the number of times spent with visitors by each employee was greatly reduced.

Streamlining customer transactions involves moving from a point-to-point approach, which can be a labor-intensive undertaking, to a more one-stop flow focused on navigating customers through all necessary steps within the department at one time.

According to Bill Ondulich, certain target areas for improvement, such as inspections and plan review, were part of customer-focused efforts that also streamlined operations.

A key component of navigating to a reduced workload with efficient dispatch of customer inquiries, applications and permits was securing industry software and other technology to better connect customers of city departments, such as planning or code enforcement, with virtual tools.

In 2017, Bill Ondulich started a bid review process and later acquired approximately $1 million in necessary hardware and software for operations. A system administrator was also engaged to start a needs analysis.

An easy determination made by Bill Ondulich was that acquiring and implementing new development software would make it possible for contractors and other key industry professionals to apply for permits and file plans online for approval.

By providing this service, customers are able to more quickly comply with city codes from their computers and other devices. Meanwhile, employees are able to review plans more efficiently and with greater detail.

Automating routine manual processes also frees up employees for more development-focused projects to benefit the city.

However, transitioning more services to online access is only part of the picture.

Bill Ondulich also believes in staffing and oversaw the hiring of additional workers to keep up with the demands of customers at key city positions and reduce overall wait times as new procedures were implemented.

Roller Coaster Reviewer Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota Discusses 5 Often Unknown Roller Coaster Facts

Jessica Brambilla Sarasota

Roller coaster reviewer and theme park enthusiast Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota discusses the top 5 unknown facts about roller coasters.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota is a long-time roller coaster reviewer and theme park, enthusiast. She knows more about roller coaster than most park officials and recently released her most interesting and unknown roller coaster facts.

"Many people don't know that the world's oldest roller coaster is still working and ready to ride," Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota said. "Leap-The-Dips was created in Altoona, Penn., 1901 and is now a National Historic Landmark."

Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota also described that the concept of roller coasters was inspired by Russia. As early as the 1600s, Russians were sledding on giant, wooden slides covered in ice. They'd sit atop a straw seat or block of ice and slide down as speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. The idea was later taken to France, where the slides didn't fare well in the warmer temperatures. Tracks were created and wheels were added to the sleds to create the first modern roller coaster in 1817.

"The first roller coaster in America was extremely slow by today's standards," Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota says. "At its fastest point, the Switchback Railway in Brooklyn reached a speed of 6 miles per hour."

Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota explained how different that is from today's coasters. She described that the world's fastest roller coaster, Formula Rossa in Abu Dhabi, can reach speeds of 149 miles per hour in less than five seconds. However, she stated that six of the world's top 10 fastest coasters are actually right here in the United States.

"Many people think height restrictions are because kids can fall out of the coaster, but that's not exactly why they're set in place," Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota says. "Height restrictions are in place to keep children and smaller people safe in the event of a sudden stop."

Roller coaster experts like Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota describe that physics alone will typically hold passengers of all sizes in their seats. It's the possibility of an emergency stop that keeps height restrictions in place. Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota explains that height restrictions are actually more serious than people think, so it's important not to push your friend or child to appear taller by standing on tip-toes or using other tactics.

"Your chances of getting seriously hurt on a roller coaster are extremely slim," Jessica Brambilla of Sarasota says. "However, we always want passengers to meet height requirements in the very rare chance of an incident."

The National Safety Council states that passengers have a 1 in 24 million chance of incurring a serious injury from any amusement park ride. With amusement parks gearing up to open for the summer of 2020, now is the time to get excited about roller coaster drops, loops, take-offs, and more.

Kenneth Haglind of Minnesota Hospice Answers FAQs About Hospice Care

Ken Haglind Minnesota Hospice

LAKEVILLE, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — It can be devastating when a parent, grandparent, sibling, or other relative is diagnosed with a terminal disease and told that they have less than six months left to live. In addition to strong emotions such as fear, worry, sadness, and even anger, most folks feel overwhelmed by the details and difficult decisions that lie ahead.

Hospice care providers can help shoulder this burden. Kenneth Haglind, President and Co-Founder of Minnesota Hospice, wants to make sure that everyone understands the value of hospice care.

Q: What Is the Goal of Hospice?

A: "The goal of hospice is, first and foremost, to make the patient as comfortable as possible in their last months or weeks of life. However, hospice team members also play an enormous role in assisting the patient’s caretakers and family," Haglind explained.

Q: When Does a Patient Need Hospice Care?

A: Ken Haglind explains that terminally ill patients are referred to hospice when their doctors determine that they have six months or less left to live.

Q: Where Does Hospice Care Take Place?

A: "Spending one’s last months or weeks in a hospital is never ideal. One of the major benefits of hospice care is that it can often take place in a patient’s own home, whether that is their house, an assisted living community, or a skilled nursing facility. In other instances, a patient can go to a freestanding hospice center, where all medical issues can be treated but which has a homier, more comfortable atmosphere than a hospital," says Kenneth Haglind of Minnesota Hospice.

Q: Who Is on a Hospice Team?

A: A hospice team comprises a number of professionals, as well as volunteers, each dedicated to the goal of helping a patient be as comfortable as possible. According to Ken Haglind, a typical team includes:

-Physicians
-Registered Nurses, nurse assistants
-Licensed vocational nurses
-Certified nursing assistant and home health aides
-Licensed social workers
-Chaplains and spiritual care counselors
-Dieticians
-Speech, physical, or occupational therapists
-Bereavement counselors
-Integrative therapies such as massage and music therapists
-Pharmacists
-Volunteers

Q: What Do Hospice Volunteers Do?

A: In short, Ken Haglind says, just about anything that the medical team members don’t. They can run errands, prepare light meals or do light housekeeping, or simply lend a hand to hold or a shoulder to cry on — for both the patient and their loved ones. Volunteers are also called on to provide brief respite care, staying with the patient so that their family members can have a break from the demands of caretaking.

Q: Are There Licensing Requirements for Hospice Providers?

A: "Yes, on the state level. Additionally, hospices are required to comply with federal regulations and undergo regular evaluations to ensure they are in compliance. Hospice programs are also certified for reimbursement under Medicare," Ken Haglind of Minnesota Hospice explained.

Q: When Are Hospice Team Members Available?

A: Ken Haglind says, "because the symptoms and pain of life-limiting illnesses do not follow a 9-5 schedule, neither do hospice workers. At the minimum, a nurse will be on call 24/7 and able to respond to a patient’s needs by phone or a face to face visit. Some hospice programs also keep chaplains, social workers, and others on call, as well."

If you are interested in hospice care for yourself or a loved one, Kenneth Haglind advises that you speak to your (or your loved one’s) physician to determine whether hospice is appropriate. They can also refer you to a hospice program in your local area.

Boston Stands Together: Collaboration by Two Businesses to Donate Masks to Assisted Living Facility

Compass on the Bay, an Assisted Living Facility in South Boston

Samantha, Owner of 9Tailors

Local businesses 9Tailors and New England Design & Construction team up to support those on the front lines in Boston.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As horrifying as this international health crisis has been the world over, it has in many instances brought out the best in humanity. Love and compassion for one’s fellow man has been seen the world over. In no sector is this more evident than our health care workers on the front lines helping one and all–saving lives and protecting the elderly and vulnerable.

A moving reminder of how Boston stands together was brought to my attention when two local businesses came together to save lives:

The story began with a heart-felt message left by a client named Miki on the answering machine of David Supple, CEO of New England Design and Construction (an innovative and environmentally-conscious Boston based design-build firm) asking for their help. Could David and NEDC possibly help with masks? The client’s husband is a doctor at a prominent Boston hospital on the front lines and they were running out of masks…

Confronted with this deficit Miki was literally scouring her own contacts in hope of finding any supply–a long shot but necessary in the face of crisis. David’s company had done a beautiful remodel for the family and she thought of him and called. Its a moving message and you can hear the family’s small child in the background. The father is putting his life on the line each day.

David and the NEDC team had limited masks but decided to act. They had a short supply, none were readily available and Design-Build executives and creatives are not particularly known for their ability to tailor.

Enter Local creative Samantha Shih and 9 Tailors, a local creative design and tailoring company producing custom and bespoke clothing pieces for men and women. Artisan level quality and care rarely found in any industry–faced with this crisis Samantha and her team immediately pivoted and began to manufacture masks.

9 Tailors took this care and creativity to the front lines in an initiative to address the mask shortage by creating original masks out of their own fabrics and the up-cycle of sample pieces remaining from their high-quality shirt and dress design and production.

The initiative is called Making the Thread Count and directly manufactures and provides the masks to the vulnerable in our community and those on the front lines directly addressing this crisis. www.9tailors.com

David and NEDC reached out immediately, coordinated, provided funds and the masks went into direct production.

The first wave of masks were completed and delivered today to Miki and her family by NEDC.

Additional masks were produced and delivered by the project to Compass on the Bay, a senior assisted living center in South Boston for its staff and residents.

"We had the idea 9Tailors might have the ability to make masks and we were thrilled Sam had already started this initiative. I trust 9Tailors implicitly and it is the least we can do to help aid the heroes on the front lines helping save lives."

DAVE S., OWNER OF NEDC
www.nedesignbuild.com

"Love that Samantha and her team at 9Tailors
are finding ways to help in this trying time."

MIKE G., REPORTER FOR NFL NETWORK

EZ Boards and the VidaTalk App allow patients to express their needs and indicate the type of pain they are experiencing.

We are so honored to be a part of helping our medical community as we have found our communication tools make a significant impact on patients' recovery.”

— Dr. Lance Patak, Co-founder EZ Board

ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vidatak, a trusted supplier of communication products for hospital-based patients, and Acuity Medical (Annapolis, MD), Vidatak’s master distributor, have announced they are continuing to provide FREE EZ Boards – a simple to use communication board designed for non-verbal patients, and their VidaTalk App to hospitals during this global health crisis. Both organizations have budgeted funds to support intubated COVID-19 patients by providing these bedside hand-held solutions. Staff can order FREE EZ Boards by email to mark@acuitymedical.com, or those who have tablets can download the EZ Board on their new app via VidaTalk for a free subscription until June 30, 2020. 

The EZ Board is a sturdy but lightweight picture and word board that allows weak ventilated patients to express wants, convey needs, and indicate the type, degree, and location of their pain and other concerns. Through the Vidatak EZ Board, intubated patients can reduce their frustration while increasing their satisfaction with the medical attention they receive. 

It has been reported that 5% of people with COVID-19 infections require intubation*. With over 600,000 cases in the US today, that’s more than 30,000 COVID-19 positive patients being intubated so far. Because resources are scarce for many hospitals as they are scrambling to secure lifesaving equipment and protective gear for providers, the company wants to make these communication tools available at no cost to the hospitals and medical workers who need them. Hospitals that have been purchasing the EZ Boards are encouraged to continue purchasing in order to ensure those facilities in financial need may experience the greatest benefit.

Update April 15, 2020, as budgeted funds begin to run out, Vidatak has started a Go Fund Me campaign for help in continuing this valuable patient-centric program. The VidaTalk App available on a tablet is available in multiple languages but the demand for additional languages and platforms is high and costly to develop and implement. They are looking to manufacture 10,000+ EZ Boards and add 10 additional languages to the app to fulfill hospital requests. 

The EZ Board was developed by Dr. Lance Patak, M.D., along with Paul Masvidal, who began translating research about the evidence-based innovation. Despite uncertainties on how to meet the intubated patients’ communication needs, Dr. Patak spent two years of research with these patients conducting careful end-user assessments and testing. 

“With end-user feedback from 149 critically-ill patients who had been intubated, we created the EZ Board to match the specific human factors that enable the board to be an effective tool when critically-ill. One of our patient’s husband owned a printing shop, Media Lithographics in City of Commerce, CA, who helped with early printing of the EZ Board. Our first commercial launched printed the EZ Boards in 1990 in five languages. Now, we have translated the board into twenty languages and have distributed the EZ Board to fifteen countries, and currently, we’ve developed an APP for electronic tablets which has also been rigorously tested and adapted to ensure it is an effective tool for critically-ill patients,” said Dr. Patak. 

The EZ Board has currently become the standard in health-care for those intubated at thousands of pf hospitals in the U.S., including Sinai Health, Atrium Health, New York-Presbyterian, Penn Health, St. Jude’s, VA Health System, Children’s Health, UPMC, Kaiser, UCLA, Johns Hopkins Health System, and many more.

It took years for the filmmakers to find young adults willing to go on camera to tell their stories as many did not want to talk about being brainwashed to hate a parent after divorce, due to shame.

COVID-19 pandemic has created isolation from loved ones; a reality too familiar to families erased by the divorce courts.

Erasing Family brought me to tears as Ginger Gentile's brilliant production looks through the eyes, hearts and words of children as their childhood is erased, as one of their parents is erased.”

— Dr. Warren Farrell, co-author (with John Gray) of The Boy Crisis.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Activist filmmaker Ginger Gentile’s groundbreaking documentary Erasing Family premiered in the middle of a sold-out screening tour just as the Coronavirus pandemic began in the U.S. Based on the immense success of its tour, Gentile will be premiering the film online on Saturday, April 25th to coincide with Parental Alienation Awareness Day.

“We were in the middle of a sold-out community screening tour with over 25 cities when the Coronavirus pandemic shut us all inside. Many are isolated from loved ones, missing holidays and not being able to visit in a hospital, a reality too familiar to families erased by the divorce courts,” said Gentile director of Erasing Family.

"Erasing Family the film documentary is even more essential in this dangerous and life-changing COVID-19 pandemic. The potential for alienating children from the non-custodial parent has increased tenfold. It is certainly time for our society and yes, parents, to come together for proper co-parenting to increase the mental wellness of our children," added Dr. Jeff Gardere, author and expert better known as “America's Psychologist”.

“The film has one of the largest organic audiences, as half of all families go through divorce and over 25 million parents in North America report being erased from their children," said Gentile. Similar subject matter propelled the 2019 movie A Marriage Story to an Oscar-nomination, but Erasing Family features real people with their actual, very personal and at times gut-wrenching stories.

The film follows young adults fighting to reunite with their broken families. It took years for the filmmakers to find young adults willing to go on camera to tell their stories as many did not want to talk about being brainwashed to hate a parent after a divorce, due to shame. Family courts are often overwhelmed with cases, and few protocols exist to help these families, forcing them to fight for custody instead of helping them to be co-parents. Yet there is a happy ending as these broken families are being reunited on screen, which will inspire other children to reach out to their own erased parents. It also highlights how showing the reforms to make separation of the parents healthier is urgently needed.

"Joint Custody is still not the norm, and many bar associations oppose making it the default option as there is a lot of money to be made in custody battles," said Gentile. "Right now, only one state, Kentucky, has such a law passed in 2018."

Ginger rose to prominence in Argentina with her activism and previous feature directing credits Erasing Dad (Borrando a Papá) and Goals for Girls (Mujeres con Pelotas). For her work in reuniting families, Gentile was named an Architect of Change by Maria Shriver.

The film has over 26,000 followers on its Facebook page as “erased” parents see this film as their last hope to communicate with their children. More than 300 backers raised over $450,000.00 in crowd-funding to finance the film, and their heartfelt messages to their estranged children are seen in the end credits.

A special phone number for those who might need emotional support after watching the film has been set up. The number to text between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm (EST) is (865) 4-FAMILY (865-432-6459).

“Erasing Family brought me to tears as Ginger Gentile's brilliant production looks through the eyes, hearts, and words of children as their childhood is erased, as one of their parents is erased. This film wisely refrains from taking sides but leaves us with the indelible impression that if we don't wish to leave a child behind, we need to not leave a parent behind,” quoted Dr. Warren Farrell, co-author (with John Gray) of The Boy Crisis.

Gentile met President & Co-Owner of Glass House Distribution, Tom Malloy, through a Father’s rights group on Facebook. After screening the film, Glass House immediately made a deal to sell the film worldwide.

“A film like this is so important because it doesn’t favor one side or the other but focuses on the damage inflicted on children from misguided egos of parents and calls for social change. We knew we had to do our best to get this film out into the world,” says Malloy.

Erasing Family starts its Exclusive Screenings through Vimeo on Demand on April 25th, 2020 with a Q&A with Director Ginger Gentile at 8 pm EST on www.facebook.com/erasingfamily. Tickets are available at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/erasingfamily. The film will be released to VOD platforms everywhere, including Amazon, Tubi, and YouTube this upcoming summer.
