Uncle Luke Signs On As Spokesperson For Pharmaceutical Company To Help Get HIV Care For Underprivleged Communities [Video]
Progressive Care Inc. and PharmCo, LLC, a provider of prescription pharmaceuticals, specializing in anti-viral patient management, long term care and durable medical equipment, announced that it has retained Luther Campbell as the company’s executive spokesperson.
Despite being known for his music and sexual exploits, Uncle Luke is a leading advocate in South Florida for HIV care and services.
Luke l and PharmCo believe that pharmacy and HIV specialty service needs are often underserved, specifically in South Florida’s urban communities.
As the company’s executive spokesman Luke will aggressively lead an initiative to promote superior HIV care and services, beginning with local residents in South Florida and later expanding into a national campaign to support long term living and health with HIV/AIDS.
In connection with this expansion initiative, PharmCo, LLC has targeted two new South Florida locations which are scheduled to open in the first and third quarter of 2012.
The first of these locations is in the City of Opa Locka, FL. The second location is strategically located across from North Shore Hospital in Miami, FL. This location was selected because of the lack of pharmacy services offered at North Shore Hospital and the close proximity of a new outpatient clinic.
In additional Luke news, a short film based on the “Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” was chosen to screen at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Program which starts this weekend.
Beating out around 4,000 submissions, the Borscht mini-film gives viewers a dose of some crude humor, with a story line surrounding the booty-lusting themes embodied throughout Luke’s 2 Live Crew days.
The trailer below gives a brief look into what we can expect from the whimsical visuals, featuring Campbell himself sticking various body parts through colorful background cut-outs, as well as other explicit images.
