SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Matrixx Initiatives on Tuesday announced a partnership with health expert and former medical director for the Discovery Health Channel Andrea Pennington to help educate consumers on ways to keep healthy during cold-and-flu season. Pennington has appeared on numerous television programs, including "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Today," CNN, "CBS Morning News" and "Fox News."
Pennington's work with Zicam will focus on raising awareness about how consumers can successfully treat their colds and feel better faster. "Most people have no idea how much power they have over their health," Pennington said. "Simple, small lifestyle changes can have a big impact on wellness. Embracing positive lifestyle changes now can help protect people during cold-and-flu season and promote a lifetime of wellness. I look forward to working with Zicam to help people live a healthy lifestyle."
Through media interviews and online articles at Zicam.com, Pennington will provide practical tips for people looking to defend themselves and their families this cold-and-flu season. Pennington also will offer consumers advice on how to incorporate sensible strategies that encourage wellness throughout the year.
As part of its campaign to educate consumers about how to get rid of a cold faster, Zicam also has launched a light-hearted online video featuring TV icons from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The Zicam "Mom Squad" features Florence Henderson (“The Brady Bunch”), Meredith Baxter (“Family Ties”) and Estelle Harris (“Seinfeld”), who have joined forces to dispel the myths Americans have long harbored about treating the common cold.
