Liv­ing Med­ical Arts PLLC, in Fri­day Har­bor, Wash­ing­ton, has been select­ed by Lab­Corp as one of three nation-wide sites to pilot a unique COVID-19 test­ing pro­gram. Lab­Corp is a lead­ing glob­al life sci­ences com­pa­ny that is deeply inte­grat­ed in guid­ing patient care. 

Dr. Mandy Gul­la and staff have been work­ing close­ly with Lab­Corp for sev­er­al months to devel­op the pro­to­col. She reports, “We are excit­ed to be a par­tic­i­pant in this beta pro­gram. The poten­tial for use with­in schools is enor­mous as it allows eas­i­er access to test­ing pri­or to begin­ning in-per­son class­es! Our expe­ri­ence will help fur­ther devel­op this pro­gram in hopes of it reach­ing oth­er small clin­ics, like ours, across the nation..”

As we all know, access to COVID-19 test­ing is one impor­tant step to con­tain­ing the virus and giv­ing us all peace of mind. This pro­gram has the poten­tial to pro­vide a safe learn­ing expe­ri­ence for stu­dents and staff every­where. In addi­tion, patients would be able to stay at home when they are sick and do a COVID-19 swab test. This elim­i­nates expo­sure to oth­er peo­ple out­side their home, and poten­tial­ly pre­vents the spread of the virus.

“One of the rea­sons we were select­ed to par­tic­i­pate in this pro­gram was because of our strong com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing COVID-19 test­ing to our com­mu­ni­ty. We have done so since the begin­ning of this pan­dem­ic and will con­tin­ue to offer COVID-19 test­ing,” remarks Dr. Gulla.

Liv­ing Med­ical Arts is a mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary clin­ic deliv­er­ing natur­o­path­ic med­i­cine, phys­i­cal med­i­cine and inte­gra­tive care, serv­ing the San Juan Islands and oth­er com­mu­ni­ties for over 10 years.
