Medisure Canada Signs Contract to Distribute Testing Products Across BC’s First Nations Communities

VANCOUVER, BC  October 14, 2021 / EMPOWER CLINICS INC. (CBDT:CSE) (8EC: Frankfurt) (EPWCF:OTCQB) (“Empower” or the “Company”) an integrated healthcare company serving patients through medical centers, telemedicine platforms, a medical device company, and a high complexity medical diagnostics laboratory processing COVID-19 specimens and developing a variety of direct to consumer testing protocols- is excited to announce that via a competitive process, we have been awarded a contract with the British Columbia First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) to provide diabetic testing products for communities supported by the FNHA.

Under the contract, MediSure Canada – a wholly owned subsidiary of Empower Clinics – will supply the FNHA with its proprietary MediSure Multi-User Glucose Meter, Test Strips, and Control Solution for the FNHA effective Sept. 1, 2021, to Aug. 31, 2023.

Diabetes Canada cites the rate of First Nations with diabetes living on reserve at 17 per cent and 12 per cent for those residing off reserve. This is compared to only five per cent among the general population. Through collaboration with the FNHA’s community delivery program, MediSure is fulfilling its mission of providing affordable, high-quality diabetic management products to all Canadians. In conjunction with other contracts, MediSure is forging ahead on its path to become the preferred Canadian supplier of diabetic management devices.
