LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 19, 2024--

Next Health, the only all-in-one health optimization and longevity company that removes barriers to life-improving and lengthening treatments, surpassed growth goals by exceeding the 50-territories-sold mark this month. This milestone, expanding the company’s footprint to 10 states and 3 countries, comes after the much-anticipated franchising opportunity launched in Q3 2023. Aiming to empower people to achieve optimal vitality through preventative and custom-tailored care, Next Health announced today its next goal: become the largest health optimization and longevity company by the close of 2027, with 150+ open locations servicing 600,000+ customers.

Next Health stands out to consumers, as well as entrepreneurs interested in franchising, as the only company to seamlessly operate four high-demand businesses under one roof: cutting-edge recovery technology, health optimization, aesthetics services, and advanced longevity solutions. In addition, next health customers are able to have a direct relationship with an on-site provider that takes a data-driven approach to completely manage and tailor their wellness journey and treatment options to help them achieve optimal vitality. A key differentiator for Next Health within the franchising space are its industry-leading unit economics. Next Health locations attract and retain health-focused customers whose wallet share would otherwise be spread across multiple businesses in their market.

“Next Health marries the most advanced health optimization treatments with keen technological operations,” said Scott Svilich, COO, and leader of Next Health’s strategic growth. “The booming wellness economy is projected to surge 26% to $8.5T by 2027 and Next Health is at the forefront capturing a large percentage of that through new locations and technology. Next Health is just getting started and each of our franchisees are contributing to our collective mission to pioneer a new path for us all to live longer, healthier lives.”

In a joint statement, Next Health’s co-founders, Dr. Darshan Shah and Kevin Peake, said, “We founded Next Health with the mission to always provide what’s next in health to individuals around the world. Our brand’s promise is, no matter where or how a customer engages with Next Health, they’ll have access to the latest and best wellness technology and treatments available.”

KALAMATA, Greece (AP) — Nine Egyptian men went on trial in southern Greece on Tuesday, accused of causing a shipwreck that killed hundreds of migrants and sent shockwaves through the European Union’s border protection and asylum operations.

Outside the courthouse, a small group of protesters clashed with riot police as the proceedings got underway. There were no reports of serious injuries but two people were detained.

The defendants, most in their 20s, face up to life in prison if convicted on multiple criminal charges over the sinking of the “Adriana” fishing trawler on June 14 last year off the southern coast of Greece.

International human rights groups argue that their right to a fair trial is being compromised as they face judgment before an investigation is concluded into claims that the Greek coast guard may have botched the rescue attempt.

More than 500 people are believed to have gone down with the fishing trawler, which had been traveling from Libya to Italy. Following the sinking, 104 people were rescued — mostly migrants from Syria, Pakistan and Egypt — and 82 bodies were recovered.

The protesters could be heard inside the packed courtroom as presiding judge Eftichia Kontaratou read out the names of the nine defendants.

Defense lawyer Spyros Pantazis asked the court to declare itself incompetent to try the case, arguing that the sinking occurred outside Greek territorial waters. “The court be turned into an international punisher,” Pantazis told the panel of three judges. United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres last year described the shipwreck as “horrific."

The sinking renewed pressure on European governments to protect the lives of migrants and asylum seekers trying to reach the continent, as the number of people traveling illegally across the Mediterranean continues to rise every year.

Lawyers from Greek human rights groups are representing the nine Egyptians, who deny the smuggling charges.

“There’s a real risk that these nine survivors could be found ‘guilty’ on the basis of incomplete and questionable evidence, given that the official investigation into the role of the coast guard has not yet been completed,” said Judith Sunderland, an associate director for Europe and Central Asia at Human Rights Watch.

Authorities say the defendants were identified by other survivors and the indictments are based on their testimonies.

The European border protection agency Frontex says illegal border detections at EU frontiers increased for three consecutive years through 2023, reaching the highest level since the 2015-2016 migration crisis — driven largely by arrivals at the sea borders.
