RC Outsourcing Services /Ray Carlson

Ray Carlson We serve the needs of retinal clinics by specializing in the repacking of Avastin and the compounding of intraocular injections. With nearly one million doses prepared without incident and best pricing in the industry, we will gladly provide you with quality and safety at a reasonable price. We offer free shipping on orders of certain sizes, and we now offer silicone and oil free Norm-Ject syringes for no additional charge. Although we specialize in intraocular injections, you may contact us for other compounding needs. As an FDA registered 503B outsourcing facility, we are able to serve a wide range of clientele, such as retinal specialists, ophthamologist, hospitals, and medical clinics. We value every client relationship greatly, and each engagement benefits from breadth of our quality and expertise. We conduct end product testing for each batch of our products so you can be assured with our high standards and level of patient safety. As our profession and the agencies that regulate us continue to work to modify rules and guidances on expiration dates, acceptable storage/delivery systems (syringes), and general storage conditions, we will reserve the right to modify delivery and packaging accordingly. There remain best practices yet to be agreed upon that could impact delivery schedules and pricing. As they occur, please know that we will do our best to ensure that physician needs continue to be met in the most timely and cost efficient manner as patient safety allows.

We are a new organization working towards the assistance of dogs and cats in the Mahoning County and surrounding areas. ​ We understand that sometimes things happen and every once in a while people need help. No matter the scenario we want to be that help. ​ With our main focus being on homeless dogs and cats we also plan to aide those in homes as well as in rescue. ​ Whether it's providing assistance for medical treatments or preventative care, food supply, or rehoming needs Buster's Brigade wants to be there. ​ Helping you, help them! ​


Godspell - Hopewell

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
