 ActivMed’s growth in 2019 has been extraordinary!

2019 is approaching its’ end, and what better way to end it then to recap what has happened at ActivMed Practices & Research, Inc. This year ActivMed turned 25 and what a year of growth it has been! We have accomplished so much and we could not have done it without you!!

This year we are proud to announce the beginning of a new sister company called Allcutis Research!

Allcutis is the new sister company for ActivMed Practices & Research, focusing on dermatology studies.

Within this company we can conduct all our dermatology trials. Over the years we have conducted studies in a variety of indications and this company will allow us to zero in on the specific dermatology studies. Check out the new website for more specialized info regarding our dermatology side of the business. www.AllcutisResearch.com 

Aside from doing the business of conducting research to help our patients and future generations, we are passionate about being involved in the community! Throughout the year we participated in local charities to benefit needy children, community health fairs and events, like presentations from our CEO, and training for healthcare workers, that help raise awareness of clinical research.

Shades of Hope 2019 – Impact Melanoma:  As sponsors of Impact Melanoma, we were thrilled to spend the evening with others and welcome Dr. Jerome Adams (featured on the left) and his wife Lacy Adams (featured on the right), a melanoma survivor.

 

Walk to End Alzheimer’s- Each year we sponsor and participate in two local Walks to End Alzheimer’s. We want to raise awareness that you can do more than just “walk” to further research, you can volunteer! For those that come out to support their loved ones, we also offer information about getting an annual Memory Screening.

Toy Drive – happens annually around December, and newly unwrapped gifts are collected for the children of the Boys and Girls Club in need.
