— sabrina jones

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Writer/Director Lorenzo DeStefano based his new narrative short film, “Stairway to the Stars”, on a real incident that he witnessed when he first moved to Hollywood from Honolulu, of an older woman and an overweight young man climbing a set of steep outdoor steps in the Hollywood Hills, bickering at each other the whole way up.

Produced as a One-Act play in 2019, the film version of “Stairway to the Stars” explores the complex relationship between friends who are enemies and enemies who are friends. Lavergne is an aging actress on the verge of mental and physical collapse. Tony is a young gay man of blind ambition and ample proportions who has vowed to save her life. The complex relationship between this oddest of odd couples is humorous, tragic and deeply touching, revealing itself between the bottom of the stairs and the top.

DeStefano’s film is a tribute to Nathanael West’s “Day of the Locust”, the plays of Samuel Beckett, and to the countless two-reel comedies shot in these very hills over 100 years ago. The line Producer is Andis Solomon. Executive Producers are Carole Joyce & Randell J. Brasher.

Starring Sean Young & Quinton Aaron:

I am overwhelmed with joy to share these songs with fans of both myself and Lawrence (Brownlee). I only pray that this body of work will be a healing gift to all for the season of love and hope.””


NEW YORK, NY, US, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Acclaimed Neo-classical Piano Prodigy BLKBOK Brings The Magic With New Angels Watching Over Me Mixtape, To Be Released October 29
BLKBOK Gifts The Holiday Spirit Early With First Single ‘All Night, All Day,’ The First Of The Mixtape’s Duets With Renowned Opera Singer Lawrence Brownlee
The Musical Laureate Continues his Select Tour Dates through 2021


“Bravo, Bravo! That was brilliant! Incredible talent!” ~ Mike Muse, SiriusXM Urbanview

“His music is taking the country and world by storm…[he’ll] be around for a while!” ~ Tavis Smiley, KBLA RADIO

New York, NY – (September 30, 2021) – Today, acclaimed neo-classical pianist BLKBOK announces a new holiday duet mixtape with renowned opera tenor Lawrence Brownlee, 'Angels Watching Over Me'. In anticipation of the future holiday must-have, the first single from the mixtape was unveiled to platforms today,“All Night, All Day '', and released through icons+giants and ADA Worldwide. Brownlee’s captivating and emotionally-charged vocals bring new and enthralling spins on some key holiday classics in the upcoming collection of intimate piano and vocal performances, recorded at New York City’s Dubbway studio, produced by Grammy-winner Billy Mann to be released everywhere on October 29, 2021.

Having already gained “notice for his unusual and beautiful approach to classical music,” as noted by Tavis Smiley on KBLA Radio, BLKBOK maintains this unique and trojan horse-like approach to the genre within Angels Watching Over Me, by stepping up his voice for activism and diversity in the industry with a sonically-rewarding body of work – in true partnership with Brownlee, the genre’s original force for the cause of diversity.

“It has been a gift and a pleasure working on this collection with the incomparable Lawrence Brownlee,” shares BLKBOK. “He brings brilliance, class, and a voice like none other to our interpretations of holiday season classics. I am overwhelmed with excitement to share these songs with new and existing fans of both myself and Lawrence, I only pray that this body of work will be a healing gift to all for the season of love and hope.” Having grown up in inner-city Detroit, obsessed with hip-hop music and culture, even referring to this collection as a “mixtape,” similar to his mixtape CVRART, all reflects his commitment to bringing alternative music and voices to the black community.

The new mixtape was born following the phenomenal chemistry audiences saw onstage during a recent emotional and rousing duet at a sold-out performance at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall this past summer, with the famed opera singer. The duet kicked off the start of the Detroit native’s national tour, who recently returned to the Motor City for the sold-out “Peace for the Soul” event hosted by Ann Delisi of WDET (Detroit), who shared “It was an honor for WDET to collaborate with this extraordinary artist as he returned home with his message of peace, tolerance and love." This followed his own “Artist Spotlight” in the Detroit News, for his opening moment ahead of Damien Escobar at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre. He escorted audiences on a journey through his dexterous arrangements and melodic scores off his recent hit album, Black Book, “a virtuosic, but not over-ripe or indulgent” project that brought “you into his head and his heart with precision and bold articulation,” as proclaimed by Atwood Magazine.

In pairing with Brownlee on Angels Watching Over Me, BLKBOK’s further exudes his “superpower: Telling his unique story and constructing a bridge between worlds in the process.” You won’t want to miss BLKBOK’s upcoming live performances, including his SoFar Sounds: Living Set airing on November 5, 2021 and even more to be announced soon:
October 2 Phoenix, AZ (MIM) The Musical Instrument Museum (http://mim.org/events/blkbok/)
November 13 Titusville, FL Astronaut Hall of Fame Gala , Kennedy Space Center (https://astronautscholarship.org/ahof.html)

BLKBOK is no stranger to the industry grind, having hit the road throughout his career with Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Timbaland, Cirque Du Soleil, John Mayer and more, as their piano player on the road. All the while, BLKBOK was composing scores of unfinished piano segments, collecting digital dust on a hard drive as the tour and travel life continued and, like all of us, then 2020 hit. And now, the accomplished musical auteur continues to step into focus, with himself and his body of work as the main subject.

To learn more about his story watch I AM BLKBOK .

Born and raised in Detroit’s inner-city, BLKBOK (born Charles Wilson III), grew up in a music-filled house. By the time he was 8, BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions. When it came to music, most of the kids he grew up with pursued hip-hop, adopting hip-hop monikers on trend with their time. However, it’s no coincidence that Charles chose the name BLKBOK, which echoes that of one of the greatest pianists and composers of all time. The tag is also an apt reflection of the elements that have contributed to the artist’s identity and symbolizes his colorful journey from pop and hip-hop culture to his present-day neo-classical debut album. BLKBOK was inspired to create his critically acclaimed, debut album Black Book as a tribute to the movie Green Book and the courageous story of Pianist/Composer Don Shirley, who’s trailblazing spirit helped pave the way for black classical pianists to this day. Black Book is a 12-track body of work that includes a vocal collaboration titled ‘My Life,’ featuring Renée Elise Goldsberry, a Grammy and Tony award-winner for her role in the Broadway musical Hamilton. The rest is a collection of poignant and thought-provoking scores from ‘Michelle’s First Day at The White House’ to ‘George Floyd & The Struggle For Equality,’ ‘Cookie Waltz’ and ‘November 7, 2020’. A collaboration with award-winning poet Lauren Delapenha, provides an added creative dimension to the project. Black Book was recorded at Red Bull Studios in New York City.

New Web Tool: Job Posting Generator Gives All Users a Piece of Recruitment Company Expertise

Job Posting Generator

New web tool for recruitment

Writing Great Job Posts like a Pro to Attract Top Quality Candidates Just Got Easier

CHINO HILLS, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It used to be that writing a great job post required reading several advisory how-to articles and for dedicated HR professionals it meant attending conferences about staffing planning and recruitment. Now, Amtec has released a web tool anyone can use for creating an informative and compelling job posting that will help job seekers to self-screen by discerning if the position is the right match for them.

Enabling job seekers to self-screen helps everyone. It’s the job of the job posting to inform about the five main parts relating to the job opening: Company overview, Position summary, Personality characteristics, List of responsibilities, and List of job requirements. Surprisingly, many job postings are missing one or more of these essential elements which leaves it to the job seeker’s imagination as to whether or not this job is for them. Job seekers naturally lead toward optimism to boost their confidence in their job hunt. The combination of omitted details from job postings and job seeker optimism leads to a flood of irrelevant applications that instead need to be screened by the hiring manager. Job seekers then become fatigued from lack of response and the labor pool weakens.

Without automated help, a well-intended hiring manager creating an entirely handmade job posting is more likely to leave out one or more details needed to maximize the relevancy of applicants. This is where the Job Posting Generator comes in; it’s similar to other web tools that function as a user-friendly wizard delivering a ready-to-use byproduct based upon simple form entries combined with a compelling format. “Our direct hire and contract recruiters use this same process for writing job postings and now we’re happy to release this new web tool version for public use. We’re not worried about giving a piece of our business away since this is actually an extension of our mission of Helping Companies Build High-Performing Teams and Helping People Find Meaningful Work.” – Barrett Kuethen, Amtec COO.

While there are many places to easily create a job posting, job boards like ZipRecruiter are disincentivized to offer a detailed job posting generator because it conflicts with how they measure success – in the number of job postings added. All marketers know adding more required fields to a form decreases the number of form completions. The need for job boards to maximize form completions for job posts results in only requiring job posting creators to supply the minimum amount of detail. Consequently, many job posts are not examples of being the best possible explanation of the open position. In contrast, the sole purpose of Amtec’s Job Posting Generator is to maximize the quality of the post. Once created, the user can of course copy and paste their new job post onto ZipRecruiter, LinkedIn, Indeed, and any job board they choose.

With this in mind, the Job Posting Generator is of greatest benefit to users who:
• Are filling positions that require the candidate to meet a higher level of qualification.
• Have a need to reduce the number of applicants to only the most qualified candidates.
• Compete with other companies for the same top candidates and need a better job post.

If the job opening requires management experience or qualifications in a specific industry then creating a stellar job post is of elevated importance for finding the right person amongst a wide field of candidates. Examples of industries benefiting from more highly detailed job postings include accounting, aerospace, engineering, administration, construction, information technology, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, medical, marketing, and sales.

Good job postings will help the best candidates to find the right job opportunities for their skills and experience, and they will help hiring managers to have a better matching pool of applicants to contact about an interview and about potentially becoming the new member of their high performing team.

Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2022

Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles 2022 Price Guide, the most complete and best-illustrated antiques and collectibles price guide, has just hit book stands.

We know you’ll enjoy our new price book. It’s filled with loads of information you can’t afford to be without. We’ve spent years building our research library, and work daily to keep prices updated.”

— Terry Kovel

CLEVELAND, OHIO, US, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 54th edition of the perennially popular Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide by Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel is now available online at Kovels.com and at booksellers nationwide. With more tips, more marks, and more prices than any other price guide on the market, Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2022 gives antiques enthusiasts the information they need to quickly identify and price finds, and to buy and sell more confidently.

For more than five decades, casual and expert collectors have turned to the Kovels, the most trusted name in the industry, for their knowledge and research. The just-released 2022 price guide includes more than 3,000 photos; 500 makers’ marks, logos, and dates; and 12,500 all-new prices of antiques and collectibles in more than 700 categories sought-after by collectors, including Advertising, Furniture, Glass, Jewelry, Kitchen, Porcelain, Tiffany, Toys, Sewing, Tools, and more. Prices are from actual sales—no estimates—and are reviewed for accuracy.

Best of all, there’s an entirely new center section in Kovels’ 2022 book — “Collecting Trends: Twentieth-Century American Studio Jewelry” — showcasing designers of the new, bold, and modern “jewelry as art” that emerged in the late 1940s and ’50s. Also included is an exclusive report on the past year’s record-setting prices, as well as insider information, comments on trends and pricing patterns, hundreds of expert tips, and fakes alerts. All of this enables collectors to buy, sell, and collect with confidence.

Here is a peek at some of the fascinating listings in Kovels’ 2022 price guide: The most expensive item is a 7-gallon stoneware water cooler made in 1846 and decorated with Broadway street scene in cobalt blue that auctioned for $480,000. The least expensive entries, at $2 each, are a 1980s plastic figural Spider-Man bookmark and a Royal China “Country Charm” saucer. The largest item in the book is an early 20th century Flemish style tapestry picturing the Battle of Pavia. It is just over 17 by 9 feet and sold for $4,720. And there are a few listings that measure 1/2 inch — a set of Trianon 18-karat-gold cuff links with gemstones that sold for $610, a lot of five agate and Dzi bead buttons from c.1800 that sold together for $1,088, a pair of 18-karat-gold earrings with citrine stones that brought $480, and a pair of Victorian gold tone buttons with an eagle that went for $3.

Antiques collectors have turned to the Kovels for their outstanding annual price guide ever since the first guide appeared in 1968. Since then, collecting has become more popular and collectors have become savvier and better informed. With a nationally syndicated newspaper column, newsletter, past TV series and a popular website, Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel are, without a doubt, America’s leading popular authorities on antiques and collectibles. Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2022 is a valuable resource to help collectors make wise decisions and save money. Available now at Kovels.com and local bookstores.

L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 36 is now available in South Africa

“L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 36,” is available in South Africa thanks to a partnership between Galaxy Press and Willow Trading SA.

Writers of the Future is a chance to dine amongst industry giants. I could not recommend entering this competition more.”

— Stephen Spinas, Illustrators of the Future winner from Cape Town

JOHANNESBERG, GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The international best-selling series, “L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future,” is now available in South Africa thanks to a newly established partnership between Galaxy Press and Willow Trading SA, including Volume 36 now in stores.

The L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests were created in 1983 and have left an indelible mark on the fields of science fiction and fantasy. With nearly four decades of developing new professional writers and cultivating new professional illustrators, the impact that the two Contests have had on the field is best summed up by The Midwest Book Review calling Writers of the Future “the gold standard of emerging talent into the field of science fiction fantasy that has contributed more to the genre than any other source.”

With Contest entrants from over 175 countries and winners from over 50, South Africa is in the ranks of countries contributing to that gold standard of emerging talent. Illustrators of the Future winner Stephen Spinas from Cape Town (www.artstation.com/artofscs) will be published in the upcoming L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 37, releasing November 2. When asked about what the Contest meant to him, Spinas stated, “Writers of the Future is a chance to dine amongst industry giants. I could not recommend entering this competition more. The opportunity to be involved with long-time industry professionals is something any aspiring artist or writer should not pass on.”

In addition to the Contests, the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Podcast (www.writersofthefuture.com/podcast) is now in its third year with interviews on some of the biggest names of science fiction and fantasy writing and illustration, including the podcast interview with international bestselling Nigerian-American author and Writers of the Future judge Nnedimma Nkemdili “Nnedi” Okorafor. Listen at https://bit.ly/NnediPodcast

The L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop (www.writersofthefuture.com/writing-workshop) is a free workshop created to provide valuable tools for a writer of any skill. Designed as an intermediate-level writing course, people of all levels have found this workshop helpful with the story structure, character development, the formulation of story ideas, and the business of writing.

The award-winning Writers of the Future Forum (www.writersofthefuture.com/forum) provides a place for aspiring writers to go to meet up with like-minded authors, providing a safe place to discuss and share ideas, get help, and make friends.

The Writers of the Future Writing Contest, now in its 38th year, was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future, was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for aspiring artists.

The over 500 past winners and published finalists of the Writing Contest have published over 1,800 novels and nearly 6,200 short stories. In addition, they have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers, and their works have sold over 60 million copies.

The 370 past winners of the Illustrating Contest have produced over 6,000 illustrations, 360 comic books, graced 624 books and albums with their art, and visually contributed to 68 TV shows and 40 major movies.

AME Awards Announces 2021 Award Winners: AMVBBDO’s Wombstories Earns AME Best of Show & Platinum – Europe

Regional Platinum Awards go to UAE Government Media Office/MullenLowe MENA McCann Lima, Special Group NZ, Starcom USA; BBDO Germany Honored with AME Green Award

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York Festivals® AME Awards®, world-wide since 1994, announced the 2021 award-winners.

The international AME Awards Grand Jury awarded the following: AME Best of Show (Grand Award), 5 Regional Platinum Awards, 1 Green Award, 28 Gold, 37 Silver, 23 Bronze, and 33 Finalist Certificate Awards for generating stellar creative and tangible results for their brand.


AMVBBDO’s “Wombstories” for client Libresse was honored with the prestigious 2021 AME Best of Show (Grand Award) and the AME Regional Platinum – Europe. “Wombstories” also earned 3 Gold Awards.

The powerfully effective campaign celebrating womanhood takes the viewer to where no other brand has gone before, in the womb. The 3-minute film weaves together multiple story lines about the culture of shame and silence that surrounds women’s intimate experiences and inspired women to share their own stories while building up market share across the world. Results include over 100 million views spread to 132 countries. In the UK, “Wombstories” achieved #1 share of social voice, a 200% increase in followers and trended online and built market share across the world – 8.1% (UK), 14.1% (Russia; highest share ever), 9.9% (Denmark). The campaign helped to raise €7,000 in France for contraception projects, and £9,000 for Endometriosis UK.

“We’re tremendously proud to have been awarded Best of Show and AME Platinum – Europe at the Advertising Marketing Effectiveness awards. To have achieved these accolades for Bodyform/Libresse in two consecutive years makes it doubly gratifying. We place the highest value in making work that works so being recognised by the AME awards – amongst a hotly contested field and judged by some of the sharpest minds in our industry – is a brilliant endorsement of our approach to creating brave and effective work for our clients.” –Tom White, Chief Strategy Officer, AMVBBDO & David Edwards, Chief Customer Officer, AMVBBDO

Four international agencies were recognized with 2021 AME Regional Platinum Awards.

Asia Pacific

Special Group New Zealand was honored with the Regional Platinum Award – Asia Pacific for “Meddle in the New Zealand Election” for client Every Kiwi Vote Counts. The agency also earned 2 Gold for "Meddle in the New Zealand Election" and a Gold for “Good Morning World” (Tourism New Zealand).

Special Group’s Platinum winning campaign used powerful strategic insights to mobilize overseas New Zealanders to vote in New Zealand’s 2020 national election. The winning strategy overcame the barrier of overseas Kiwis believing their votes didn’t matter. The campaign utilized Russian spokesperson “Viktor” to encourage overseas Kiwis to vote by Infiltrating their social networks and news feeds. The social led campaign reached 1 in 2.5 overseas Kiwis in just 18 days. Results— Over 80 million earned global impressions, an ROI of 9.67:1 driving voter engagement and turnout. The highest turnout on record, with a 42% increase in overseas residents voting. The click thru to the NZ voting site from everykiwivotecounts.nz represented 67% of the additional overseas resident votes.

“I’m so thrilled to be recognised by our peers around the world. To win a platinum for APAC at the AME is a true honour. Thank you to our amazing client who strove for greatness. And congratulations to all of the winners on their success.” –Rory Gallery, Chief Strategy Officer, Special Group New Zealand

"It is an honour to have The Meddler recognized by the AME in celebrating brave and effective campaigns. Never more so than when that effectiveness is for impact on democracy and culture. There has never been a more crucial time for creative problem solving. Heartfelt thanks to my fearless partners in Meddling, Special New Zealand. And I challenge you all to make good trouble in 2022." –Tracey Lee, Initiator/Strategic Lead, Every Kiwi Vote Counts

Latin America

McCann Lima’s “If you're outdoors, you need to protect yourself” was honored with the Regional Platinum Award – Latin America for their client League Against Cancer. The agency also earned a Gold for “If you're outdoors, you need to protect yourself”, and 2 Gold Awards for their campaigns “Delivery to Burger King” and “The most famous griller in Peru” (Burger King).

McCann Lima’s results-driven winning entry reminded residents of Lima the importance of wearing sunscreen. As skin cancer diagnoses continued to climb in Lima, the agency negotiated with 55 brands with outdoor billboards and convinced every single brand to agree to put sunscreen on the most viewed and expensive billboards in Peru located on the South Pan-American Highway, leading to the most visited beaches. The agency convinced prominent brands Coke, Pepsi, Nike, and Adidas. All total 55 big brands in total joined the cause and gave space on those billboards for the entire summer to draw attention to the League Against Cancer’s message. Impressive results include 100 km of highway lined with the brand’s message worth $12 M in outdoor advertising and $7.8 M earned media, plus thousands of people sharing photos of their “sun-screened faces on social media.

“For our office it is a great honor to receive this important award which puts us in the world showcase. This campaign is really special for us, because in it we managed to unite more than 50 brands, which agreed to collaborate with the League Against Cancer to bring a health message to Peruvians. An example that when big brands come together, they can have a great impact on society” –Christian Caldwell, Chief Creative Officer, McCann Lima

Middle East & Africa

The UAE Government Media Office & MullenLowe MENA scored the Regional Platinum Award – Middle East & Africa for “Double Moon” for the UAE Government Media Office. Additional recognition for UAE Government Media Office & MullenLowe MENA includes 2 Gold Awards for “Double Moon” and an additional Gold for “The World’s Tallest Donation Box” (The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives).

When the UAE sent a probe to Mars, the government wanted to make sure everyone was watching this epic event. UAE Government Media Office & MullenLowe MENA’s campaign used super-realistic sky mapping projection technology and projected two exact replicas of the Mars moons onto the sky to make UAE residents feel as if they were in space. Within hours of the projection videos flooded the internet and the media covered the phenomenon. An announcement revealed the truth and invited everyone to tune into the live stream and watch the UAE arrive on the Red Planet.

Impressive results—The Hope Probe’s Arrival on YouTube was the most-watched live stream ever in the UAE. The activation reached more than 82 million people, equivalent to more than 8 times the entire population of the UAE. With a single stunt executed over 5 days in just one location, the campaign achieved over USD 8.2 million in earned media, and more than 380 broadcast networks in over 50 countries covered the story.

“For our first participation at the AME Awards to be recompensed with a Regional Platinum Award for the Middle East and Africa, as well as a Gold, is truly amazing. It may not be as big a journey as the Hope probe’s mission to Mars this entry relates to or the 50 years of the UAE it marks, but it is still a giant step for us. A global recognition for our strategic thinking, creative excellence, and effectiveness is a massive encouragement to keep pushing the boundaries and aim higher still. We broke new ground on Earth and in space, we’re certainly not stopping here.”—Khaled AlShehhi, Executive Director of Digital, UAE Government Media Office Communication

“The stars from New York are shinning on us brightly this year. Having won the New York Festivals Regional Agency of the year 2021 and now the AME Platinum Award for the Middle East and Africa. Wow. A huge congratulations to my talented bunch of creative cohorts and our amazing planners/account peeps @MullenLowe MENA who dream big every day. Plus, a galactic sized thank you to the best client in the world who pushed us to dream even bigger. Finally, a humble thank you to all the judges for giving up their precious time. What else can I say other than that we are all feeling over the moon today ;)” –Paul Banham, Regional Executive Creative Director, MullenLowe MENA

The co-branded Pringles “Pickle Rick” flavor saw overwhelming demand, becoming the #3 trending item on eBay. The Pringles partnership with Rick & Morty achieved more than 1.2 billion impressions, far exceeding the previous two Pringles Super Bowl campaigns. Pringles made several “best of” lists coming out of the big game—with the spot named the #1 liked Super Bowl campaign on YouTube. Pringles’ household penetration grew by $1.4 Million. And overall, Pringles grew +13% in GSV (gross sales volume) in 2020, a record for the brand.

A big shout out to our Kellogg’s Pringles clients, Adult Swim and Grey for their collaboration and partnership.” –Jonathan Goorvich, VP Director Content Partnerships, Starcom

Complimentary Heart and Chest Scan in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Like with every form of cancer, early detection is what it is all about. I urge everyone to learn the facts about this condition. It can be prevented with testing, and it can be beaten if caught early”

— Rod Stewart


Tampa, FL, 9/30/2021- According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US. Every 36 seconds someone will die from cardiovascular disease. More than two hundred and thirty thousand people will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. Many of these diseases can be caught early, giving the person a chance to survive. Using our computed tomography scans with low dose radiation exposure we offer preventative body scans for our patients. The images are sent to our Board-Certified Medical Doctor of Radiology who will evaluate them for hundreds of different varietal forms of cancer. These results, along with the calcium score we provide, are saving lives every day.

At Life Guard Imaging, it’s all about early detection. The sooner a patient gets our body scan, the better our chances of capturing something early. Our patients scan annually and if anything changes, they’ll know and can take the steps necessary to treat the disease. We provide peace of mind – the peace of mind that only comes through early detection. Since arriving in Tampa, the interest in our life-saving measures has been astounding. More and more people are realizing the importance of taking their health into their own hands. By being proactive they’re finding out about diseases that have been silently developing within their body long before the first symptoms occur.

Our mission at Life Guard Imaging is to help save as many lives as possible while helping our patients look towards a proactive future for their health initiatives. We are located at 3001 N Rocky Point Dr. E Suite 185, Tampa, FL 33607.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, for the month of October 2021 Life Guard Imaging will be offering complimentary Heart and Chest Scans.
