Jay Newman is passionate about doing good in the world. He often says he’s either missing the gene that says “More for me, more for me; money, money, more for me” without contributing to society and the planet, or he’s got that priceless gene that says it’s essential to do good in the world in order to feel like a whole, fulfilled human being.
A renegade on the road less-traveled, he left college early in order to explore the nature of being a human being. He became interested in making money as a tool to help him teach about holistic health. Before long, he had the head of the entrepreneurial department at Harvard University on his Board of Advisors and had the same attorney and accountant as Steven Jobs of Apple. Ross Perot persuaded him to leave high tech and follow his passion by getting into the holistic health field.
Jay is a member of the Board of Advisors of the National Health Federation, the oldest NGO dedicated to health-freedom advocacy, including lobbying, educating, and representing the public at the Codex Alimentarius proceedings on international harmonization of laws and standards about food and nutritional supplements.
He is the CEO of Invision International Health Solutions, Inc., which he founded in 1989 for the purpose of bringing holistic health products to the public.
Jay has been interviewed on Good Morning America and NBC TV News as a leading expert in the field of ionic silver and its use for immune support in humans.
After having been encouraged by having a handful of his business customers invest in his company for the dual purposes of making money and doing good in the world, he became disillusioned when he repeatedly encountered potential multi-million-dollar investors who were essentially only in it for money and “More for me.”
He decided to form a nonprofit, where it’s unequivocally clear that the primary purpose, for all involved, is to do good in the world.
And Champions for Humanity was born.
