Baton Rouge Brain Gain – Out to Lunch – It’s Baton Rouge
Did you ever wonder who scored that perfect 100th percentile on the A.C.T.? Meet Craig Gehring.
Craig is a Baton Rouge native who got a perfect score on his ACT and has turned his genius, test-taking ability into one of the fastest-growing companies in the area. Mastery Prep started out preparing individual students for the ACT and in just a few short years it has created an entire brand of test prep materials for a variety of standardized tests that is being used in school districts across the country.
While Mastery Prep is helping to improve minds in the Baton Rouge area, Emma Kruger is doing something equally impressive: turning back the hands of time.
At the Metabolic and Anti Aging Center of Louisiana Emma specialize in the emerging field of metabolic and regenerative medicine, which involves a variety of treatment measures and lifestyle changes.
If you’re impressed by reversing time and getting a perfect score on your ACT, you probably don’t think it’s possible for a Baton Rouge business person to top that, right? Wait till your hear what Joe Lovett is up to. How about curing cancer?
Joe is Chairman of the board of Esperance, a local pharmaceutical company whose drug for beating various cancers, including breast and ovarian cancer, is in late stage trials and heading for FDA approval. This is not Joe’s first pharmaceutical development rodeo, his pre-Baton Rouge track record goes back a long and impressive way, but if he and his partner and researchers pull this off this might be The Big One.
