United EcoEnergy Corp. (OTCBB: UEEC), a healthcare solutions and product development company focusing on the expanding wound-care industry, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Epic Wound Care, Inc., has signed a corporate sponsorship agreement with the American Diabetes Association.
The three-year agreement between Epic Wound Care and the American Diabetes Association recognizes Epic as a National Strategic Partner, the Association’s highest level of corporate support for a consumer product company and it grants Epic and its affiliates a license to utilize and display the Association name, taglines and various “Proud Sponsor” and “National Strategic Partner” logos on its marketing material and products throughout the term of the agreement. The use of the Association’s name and logo does not constitute an endorsement of the product but acknowledges Epic’s commitment to supporting the mission to stop diabetes and improve the lives of those affected by the disease.
"We are pleased to announce this new agreement with the American Diabetes Association, the largest voluntary health organization committed to the fight to stop diabetes," said Kelly T. Hickel, Chairman and CEO of United EcoEnergy Corp. “As we participate in corporate sponsored events and fundraisers over the next several years we are committed to helping increase awareness of diabetes and expanding our relationship with the Association.”
The sponsorship includes the opportunity for Epic to participate in the Association’s Annual Corporate Sponsor Summit, and marketing strategy meetings that help the company develop promotional ideas related to the affiliation. In addition, Epic will receive full page color advertisements in Diabetes Forecast® magazine and have the opportunity to participate in various Association fundraising events throughout the term of the agreement.
Mr. Hickel commented, “We believe our innovative hemostatic gauze product, which is sold in the United States and around the world to help stop bleeding from various wounds, including diabetic ulcers, is an excellent example of products that complement the Association’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.”
