LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital health innovator myLAB Box, the first nationwide at-home STD testing service, today received national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise Council-West, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC's national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
myLAB Box's women-led service screens for the most prevalent STIs in the United States with the same accuracy as clinic or doctor's office test results. Its extragenital testing initiative is helping all sexually-active adults to take complete control of their health by testing for oral and anal infections, a step that many traditional screening services are lacking.
"It is an enormous honor to be a certified Women's Business Enterprise," said Lora Ivanova, Co-Founder and CMO of myLAB Box. "The healthcare establishment has been stagnating for many years. As we enter this brave new future, we need to embrace new solutions from diverse thinkers. The fact that WBENC is working so diligently to vet authentic women-run businesses is critical for creating new innovations."
myLAB Box has become the new standard for sexual health, with:
- at-home STD test packages for every lifestyle
- discreet packaging and free shipping
- easy five-minute tests that can be completed whenever, wherever
- peace of mind with lab-certified results
- free physician treatment consultations for those with positive results
