Ribbon Cutting Celebration for Brevena Laboratories!


Ribbon Cutting Celebration for Brevena Laboratories
Tuesday, August 14th at 3:30pm
1290 Hammond Road, WBL

Join us for a Ribbon Cutting Celebration for Brevena Laboratories You will enjoy a great afternoon of networking, meeting the General Manager, Julia McMann and learning more about their products, history and ground-breaking technology known as, Macro B Complex! Remember your business cards!
Our passion for healing was born in the burn units, where this proprietary technology not only transformed the world of hospital burn care, but more importantly the lives of the patients dealing with these traumatic skin injuries.  Thanks to our innovative approach to cellular skin health, these patients received the hope they needed to recover quickly.  It became clear that this technology not only transformed traumatized skin, but otherwise healthy skin as well, by reducing the signs of environmental and time-related skin damage.  It was through these discoveries that the BREVENA line of skin care products were born, and our passion for improving the lives of people everywhere, multiplied.

Opening Remarks by U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer, Minnesota 6th District

We are all impacted by the new tariffs: Costs for food, cars, appliances, “Kentucky bourbon” and products that use steel from China all face an inflationary spiral. Moderated by Doug Loon, President of the MN Chamber, several area companies that have been negatively impacted by the newly imposed tariffs will serve on a roundtable discussion.
