Local Healthcare Entrepreneur, Winery, Napa Valley Vintners and Advocates Join Forces to Bring Testing to Farmworkers
NAPA, Calif., August 11, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Community leader Lydia Mondavi, local physician and founder of Neurovations, Dr. Eric Grigsby, and the Napa Valley Vintners have collectively formed a partnership to bring COVID-19 testing to wineries, essential workers, farmworkers and hospitality workers throughout the Napa Valley. The mobile testing unit launched at Rocca Family Vineyards, owned by Dr. Grigsby and wife Dr. Mary Rocca, and will now be moving up and down the valley to meet workers at job sites.
Dr. Eric Grigsby, founder and CEO of Neurovations and Napa-based N3 Laboratories, supplied infrastructure for the testing sites including a website, online and multilingual scheduling tools, and administration aid. He was able to rapidly convert N3 Laboratories to help handle and process COVID-19 tests.
“Time is crucial here; we need testing and results now. I am more than thankful for the partners, volunteers, and my own family and staff who have made this a reality,” Grigsby said.
