Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) — Stay Well Leola is the newest Black-owned innovative health and wellness medical products and services company launched in partnership with We Gotcha Back Company, headquartered in Culver City, CA, and warehoused in Atlanta, GA. Since the virus is still spreading during this pandemic time, there is still a need for essential Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required by healthcare providers, first responders, as well as communities and protesters now!
Leola Wiley Williams, a 33-year old retired nurse and U.S. Marine Corp veteran who is president of the company, has partnered with Glen Gorden, a disabled Vietnam Era Army veteran and founder of We Gotcha Back. Both agree that they can’t just sit idly by and watch Black communities and others succumb to COVID-19. They believe that their business, as a full medical supply company that provides a variety of medical supplies and products, will significantly help solve the problem.
Health disparities plus negative climate have brought about a disservice to underserved communities, which has caused pain, suffering, and death among, particularly Black families during this unprecedented time. As a result, Glenn has invented an FDA-approved lumbar compression support belt that is assisting with the manufacturing aspect of the company.
Both Leola and Glenn share a deep passion for wanting to help others especially our youth. They both were inspired by articles written reporting that rapper/super-producer Dr. Dre gave back to his community of Compton. There are others such as P. Diddy and Magic Johnson also stepping up to the cause by supporting black businesses and encouraging community leaders to do the same. “The solution would be to own and operate businesses. Be the change,” they say.
