CLEAR Partners with MPOWERR Health & Wellness of Atlanta to Bring Fast & Affordable Testing to Metro
CLEAR is excited to announce a partnership with Atlanta-based MPOWERR Health & Wellness to bring fast & affordable testing to the metro-Atlanta adult performer community. The two companies entered into a partnership this week and will begin offering testing together as soon as Tuesday, December 20.
I think this partnership will be the catalyst of an exciting and much-needed journey to reach the masses. We are looking forward to providing these new services to our local performer community.”
"MPOWERR’s founder Taurus Jerelds has been doing an amazing job making testing available in Atlanta, but they struggled with turnaround times and making it more accessible to the performer community in the area.” said Humberto Buniotto, the CEO of CLEAR. “From our very first call with Taurus we knew we were aligning ourselves with someone who puts community, accessibility, and affordability first, which is what CLEAR is all about.” said Buniotto.
CLEAR will operate in the background as a reference laboratory and performers can book their tests directly with MPOWERR. In addition to the standard performer panel, performers will also benefit from CLEAR’s latest testing protocols that are capable of identifying the recently-identified European strain of Ct/Ng. Additionally, MPOWERR will be offering both oral and rectal swabs for Ct/Ng which were previously unavailable.
“Public Health and Infectious Disease Control have been my passion for the last 19 years.” said Taurus Jerelds, MPOWERR’s founder. “My mission and vision as an epidemiologist and owner of a non-profit healthcare organization were to serve communities and populations in need; that did not exclude the sex work industry. Here at MPOWERR, we are committed to finding ways to provide effective and efficient healthcare services to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. I think this partnership will be the catalyst of an exciting and much-needed journey to reach the masses. We are looking forward to providing these new services to our local performer community.”
