Amarantus and Brewer Sports Add Partnership With Cavendish Global to #C4CT Alzheimer's Concussion Awareness Summit at United Nations
MINNEAPOLIS, SAN FRANCISCO and GENEVA, June 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amarantus Bioscience Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AMBS) and Brewer Sports International (BSI), today announced the addition of Cavendish Global as partner at the 3rd #C4CT (Coalition for Concussion Treatment) Concussion Awareness Summit, on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at the United Nations in New York City, NY. The summit will be focused on the emerging hypothesis that brain injury may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Cavendish Global provides family offices and their foundations with a discrete, peer-to-peer knowledge expansion and relationship building environment, combined with the innovative resources required to help develop and implement their individual pro-social impact investment, grant making and philanthropy programs within health and the life sciences.
Mr. Michael Moffat, Cavendish co-founder and President explains, "Brain disorders affect more than 60 million Americans, that's more than one in four Americans suffering from mental illness or brain injury. From autism and Alzheimer's disease to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS), brain ailments cost the U.S. close to $1 trillion each year. Leading scientists have uncovered compelling evidence of the link between Traumatic Brain Injuries and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease." Moffat emphasizes, "Cancer and heart disease affect fewer people, yet receive three times more funding support than brain diseases. With recent advances in understanding the link between TBI and brain ailments, there has never been a better time for pro-social family offices and foundations to make a real difference by accelerating the development of new diagnostics and treatments through increased grant-giving and philanthropy in this important area. Cavendish is committed to help make this happen."
