Advanced Genomic Solutions, LLC (AGS) announced today that the National Wellness Institute, Inc (NWI) has entered into an exclusive partnership with AGS to offer actionable and innovative genetic testing to all NWI members and non-members alike.
"One size does not fit all when assisting individuals seeking the right nutrition, exercise and stress management plans. We now can incorporate an individual’s genetic data with expert advice from healthcare professionals to truly personalize our approach to a healthier lifestyle,” said Lance Bennett, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer for AGS. “Working with a person's genetics, not against them, helps achieve those health goals faster. NWI is an ideal partner as the premier leader in professional development and engagement opportunities for over four decades. Their membership includes some of the brightest minds in wellness our country has to offer."
The mission of the National Wellness Institute is to enrich professionals’ lives and careers with competencies and connections to promote inclusive, whole-person wellness. NWI accomplishes this by providing quality resources, promoting opportunities for life-long learning, and providing professional development programs. At the core of NWI’s offerings is its Six Dimensions of Wellness model, developed by NWI co-founder Dr. Bill Hettler in 1976.
"We are excited to bring a partner like AGS to the NWI network to help people better understand their genetic makeup. As wellness is maturing, there is a need to tailor wellness and health plans to the individual. Genetic testing is the best way to understand the dynamic of how your body chemistry adapts to lifestyle changes,” says Chuck Gillespie, CEO of the National Wellness Institute. “As we vetted many different groups, AGS exceeded NWI’s requirements for partnership: privacy, reputation, and sound evidence. Having a genetic test being part of your wellness initiative can take one-size-fits-all promotion campaigns and evolve them into individual solutions."
Benefits of the new partnership include access to all AGS Genetic Testing programs at exceptional discounts:
- Integration of AGS Genetic Testing into Corporate Wellness & Voluntary Benefit Programs
- Enrollment in the AGS Provider Program (open to all wellness, fitness and medical/clinical professionals)
- Individual Purchasing of AGS Health & Wellness Genetic Tests
AGS, a global leader in business-to-business genetic testing solutions, is focused on empowering individuals to make smarter lifestyle choices and guarantees data security and privacy. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and Central Hong Kong, AGS owns its own CLIA/CAP certified genetic testing laboratory.
