Four-surgeon, Three-location Practice Marks Beacon’s Entrance into Florida
DALLAS, March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Beacon Oral Specialists, a portfolio company of Blue Sea Capital, announced today that it has entered the state of Florida through a strategic partnership with South Florida Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, a three-location, four-surgeon practice recognized for its legacy and leadership in the OMS field, specifically in the area of dental implants.
Founded almost 35 years ago, South Florida OMS provides state-of-the-art, full-scope oral and maxillofacial services to its patients in Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, and Royal Palm Beach. Board-certified and highly respected surgeons Drs. Chris Chafin, Jeronimo Guzman, Travis Thompson, and Paul Weinstein continue to build on the practice’s reputation for compassionate care, clinical excellence, and exceptional outcomes.
In addition to caring for their patients, all four surgeons are invested in giving back to their professional community, with three having served as president of the North Palm Beach Dental Society, and all four being sought after as lecturers and authors on topics ranging from clinical best practices to business leadership. In addition, Dr. Thompson has served on mock boards for oral surgery residents at the University of Florida.
Through Beacon, the surgeons now have a network of like-minded peers to help accelerate the growth of their practice. They equally have the opportunity to share the processes and expertise they have developed over the years while collaboratively working together to protect the future of the specialty.
“We are excited for the opportunity to collaborate with our peers at Beacon and to benefit from their experience and resources to help us expand our capability and reach. This partnership allows us to provide the highest quality oral surgical care to our family of patients and referring dentists in South Florida,” said Dr. Thompson.
The partnership with South Florida OMS expands Beacon’s premier oral surgery network to include 26 market-leading oral & maxillofacial surgery practices representing more than 110 clinicians in 11 states and key MSAs in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Southwest, Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, Midwest, and Northern and Southern California.
“We’re honored to partner with a practice with the caliber of surgeons at South Florida OMS as we expand into another thriving community,” said Mike Friguletto, Beacon’s CEO. “These surgeons represent what we are about – bringing together high-performing practitioners who wish to learn and grow along with their peers, with the shared priorities of patient safety and exceptional outcomes.”
Founded in December 2020, Beacon Oral Specialists is a leading oral surgery-specific management platform allowing its distinguished network of surgeons to focus on providing best-in-class care in the communities where they practice. With its differentiated leadership team, proven resources and support, Beacon continues to attract leading practices across the country, such as South Florida OMS, to the shared vision of clinical autonomy and excellence while protecting the long-term health of their practices and the specialty.

The LGBTQI+ Economic and Financial (LEAF) Survey: Understanding the Financial Lives of LGBTQI+ People in the United States, released today, shines new light on the financial experiences and issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) people in the U.S. The report fills in critical gaps left by many federal and financial industry surveys that fail to include LGBTQI+ demographics. The report is authored by the Center for LGBTQ Economic Advancement & Research (CLEAR) and the Movement Advancement Project (MAP).
The independent survey and report were made possible with sponsorship and support from Visa and Daylight. Visa and Daylight are committed to working with underrepresented communities and helping provide financial tools to those historically underserved by the financial industry.
The report analyzes results from a survey of 2,505 LGBTQI+ and 503 non-LGBTQI+ adults, conducted December 2022-January 2023. Respondents were asked about their financial well-being, priorities and concerns, experiences with exclusion and discrimination, and costs associated with family formation, gender-affirming health care, or legally changing their name or gender marker.
Some key findings include:
- LGBTQI+ people reported losing the ability to rely financially on their families after coming out. While 73% of LGBTQI+ respondents said they could rely financially on their family before telling them about their sexual orientation, only 62% could do so after coming out. The gap was even greater for transgender respondents.
- Over half (53%) of all LGBTQI+ respondents had taken out a federal student loan to finance their education, versus 31% of non-LGBTQI+ respondents. Among borrowers, only 23% of LGBTQI+ borrowers had paid off their loans versus 39% of non-LGBTQI+ borrowers.
- Four in 10 parents (40%) reported having some out-of-pocket legal costs related to family formation. Additionally, 43% of LGBTQI+ parents had spent $1,000+ on out-of-pocket healthcare costs for family formation; nearly a third (32%) had spent $5,000+.
- Most respondents who received gender-affirming care (82%) reported spending some money out-of-pocket. Nearly half (46%) of people who had received gender-affirming care spent $5,000+ out-of-pocket; one-third (33%) had spent at least $10,000 out-of-pocket.
- LGBTQI+ people were more likely to report negative feelings about their finances than positive ones. Roughly twice as many LGBTQI+ respondents as non-LGBTQI+ respondents reported feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and depressed about their finances.
- One in 10 LGBTQI+ respondents (11%) said they had experienced discrimination in banking or financial services.
“The LEAF report reveals the immense financial pressure many LGBTQI+ people in the U.S. are living under — particularly transgender people and queer people of color. The findings illustrate the urgent need for improvements in the financial industry and in state and federal policies to support the economic needs of LGBTQI+ people and communities who are struggling financially,” said Spencer Watson, Executive Director at CLEAR.
“These new findings show the wide-ranging economic impacts of discrimination on LGBTQI+ people. This underscores the urgent need for strong and decisive efforts to counteract this financial toll and other harms. Especially given the escalating political attacks on LGBTQI+ and especially transgender people, federal protections against discrimination are essential,” said Logan Casey, Senior Policy Researcher and Advisor at MAP.
“Together with organizations like CLEAR, MAP, and Daylight, we’re able to build and advocate for more inclusive financial systems for the LGBTQI+ community around the world,” said Erin Pursell, Vice President of Fintech Business Development, Visa.
The report is available at https://lgbtq-economics.org/research/leaf-report-2023/.
CLEAR is a nonprofit that creates research, education, and advocacy to support the financial needs of LGBTQ people, organizations, and communities and to help them achieve their unique economic goals.
MAP is an independent think tank that provides rigorous research, insight, and analysis that help speed equality for all, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.

AdMeTech Foundation’s 14th Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness Day Highlights Massachusetts Model of National Leadership in Public Awareness, Education, Research and Clinical Equity
BOSTON, March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com)
AdMeTech Foundation, jointly with Senate President Pro Tempore William Brownsberger and Representative Gerry Cassidy, is hosting the 14th Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness Day. Faina Shtern, MD, President, AdMeTech Foundation, serves as emcee.
This event has brought together Senate President Karen Spilka, Speaker of the House Ronald Mariano, Senate Majority Leader Cynthia Creem, Senate Majority Whip Mike Rush, Representative Bud Williams who is Chair of the Joint Committee on Racial Equity, Civil Rights and Inclusion and Chair of the Black and Latino Caucus, and Representative Carlos Gonzalez who is Past Chair of the Black and Latino Caucus, leaders of medicine, advocacy and community organizations.
14th Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness Day will honor the memory of two prostate cancer survivors — Representative Stephen Kulik and Mr. Naakh Vysoky. Representative Kulik served as a host of this event and was a key state’s champion in the fight against prostate cancer between 2009 and his retirement in 2019. Mr. Vysoky was a lifelong warrior for the underprivileged — immigrants, the elderly, the ethnic and racial minorities; his work was recognized by the U.S. Congress and multiple Boston organizations.
Prostate cancer, striking 1 in 8 men, is the most common male malignancy and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men. Prostate cancer is a leading health disparity, causing more than two times higher mortality in Black men compared to White men. Elected officials will address prostate cancer as a major public health issue for all men and a crisis in men with Black, Hispanic and Latino heritage, who are at higher risk of delayed diagnosis, poor quality of clinical care and death.
Advocates and prostate cancer survivors will discuss the impact of prostate cancer on men, their families and communities.
Leaders of medicine will review cutting-edge advances in clinical care and research, transforming screening, diagnosis and treatment, improving survival and reducing health disparities. Prostate cancer experts from AdMeTech Foundation, Mass General Brigham and UMass Memorial Health will invite Massachusetts men, aged 40 and older, to take part in the Prostate Cancer Equity Program. This groundbreaking program has been launched recently to expedite access to the latest advances in patient care and support men every step of their medical journey. Supporting organizations include NAACP New England Area Conference and Latino Health Insurance Program, mobilizing participation of the Black, Hispanic and Latino men.
Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness Day has been critical for setting up a historic precedent by the Massachusetts General Court in recognizing prostate cancer as a public health priority and a leading health disparity since 2011. This event and Prostate Cancer Equity Program are integral components of the broader statewide prostate cancer program, which established a Massachusetts model of national leadership in public awareness, medical education, research and reducing health disparities since 2013.
AdMeTech Foundation organized this event in cooperation with the Prostate Cancer Action Council, including American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Center for Elimination of Health and Social Inequities and Disparities, Community Health Awareness Network, the Latino Health Insurance Program, Massachusetts Prostate Cancer Coalition, Men of Color Health Awareness, NAACP New England Area Conference, and Independent “Blue Ribbon” Expert Panel, consisting of the experts in clinical care and research.

Developer of password manager and crypto wallet solutions offers tips on how to keep wallets protected from new cyberattack.
NEW YORK, March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Legacy Suite, developer of digital asset management solutions, warns crypto and Ledger users against “Address Poisoning” attacks that can steal their funds.
Scammers are striking crypto users, including Ledger users, by “poisoning” their account via sending a small amount of crypto, usually USDT, MATIC, TRX, or even NFT, often imitating a transaction recorded in the user’s transaction history. It looks very similar to the user’s own address, with the goal to grab the scammer’s address and send funds to their account by mistake.
Check Every Single Character in a Wallet Address
“Address poisoning is a type of cyber-attack in which an attacker attempts to steal funds from a cryptocurrency wallet by modifying the wallet’s address,” said Azaz Ahmed, chief technology officer of Legacy Suite. “In this attack, the attacker replaces the legitimate address of the wallet with their own address, which allows them to redirect any funds sent to the wallet to their own account.”
The scammer makes a custom address with specific characters that are nearly identical to the owner’s address. It often includes the same first and last characters. It is important to check every single character in one’s wallet address before sending any transaction.
The scammer then sends a very small amount of currency, even $0, via the almost matching dummy wallet, which poisons one’s transaction history.
How to Protect Yourself
Legacy Suite offers the following suggestions for safeguarding against address poisoning:
· Stop copying and pasting your wallet address from your transaction history
· Manually check your address so it is an exact match before sending any funds
· Use your wallet’s contact book to manage addresses used often
· Be aware of anyone sending tiny amounts of cryptocurrency
· Double-check your transaction details on your Ledger
Legacy Suite has a wallet monitoring service designed to keep crypto assets secure 24/7 so that one can quickly take action to prevent any potential losses. “Legacy Suite’s wallet protection services, such as wallet monitoring and emergency backup wallet, help to protect against critical threats by providing additional layers of security to your cryptocurrency wallets,” Ahmed said.
Wallet monitoring constantly monitors activities associated with one’s wallet in case any unauthorized changes occur in real time. The owner is immediately notified if any unusual activity is detected like the addition or modification of a new or existing address allowing for prompt action and the prevention of any unauthorized access to one’s funds.
“Legacy Suite’s Lifeline, emergency backup wallet, is a service that provides you with a secure backup of your cryptocurrency wallet,” Ahmed said. “In the event that your wallet is compromised, you can quickly transfer your funds to another wallet. This protects your funds from being lost or stolen in the event of an attack.”
The wallet protection services are an additional layer of security to cryptocurrency wallets and protect them from fraud and other types of cyber-attacks.
