Dr Kevin Buckman Named Chairman and CEO of Vantage Health

Vantage Health (the “Company”) (OTCQB:VNTH) today announced the appointment of Kevin Buckman MD FAAIM, DAAUCM, MACOEM, MRO as Chairman and CEO of the Company.

The Company also announced that Mr. Jeremy Barbera, its current Chairman and CEO, is resigning as an officer and director of the Company and will focus on the scientific aspects of the Company’s technology in a non-executive capacity. This action is due, in part, to certain matters involving a company with which Mr. Barbera was associated several years ago. These matters are unrelated to the Company or any aspect of its technology or business.

It is anticipated that preliminary human trials for the Vantage Health Sensor will begin next month at Scripps Translational Science Institute, paid for by a BioPharma partner of the Company. Mr. Barbera will continue to be Chairman and CEO of Nanobeak, which is the private company majority shareholder of Vantage Health.

Dr. Buckman completed his medical training in internal medicine in 1981. He began his research in 1977 in the fields of immunology, cancer, diabetes, and chronic diseases. His discoveries of the roles of inflammation and abnormal cellular environments in cancers and immune diseases have made him a leader in the field. His research has led to his interest in technologies in early diagnosis and treatments, especially in the field of breast cancer. He recently published a book on the subject, Find and Stop Breast Cancer, as well as a book on solutions for diabetes and metabolic syndrome, titled Find and Stop Diabetes. He has worked internationally to advance a number of medical technologies with a focus on early detection of disease, with a primary focus on breast cancer and diabetes.

Dr. Buckman has served as Medical Director in various hospitals and institutions for over 25 years and has over 30 years of hospital and clinical experience. He became Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and a Fellow of the American Board of Emergency Medicine in 1990. In 2006 he became Board Certified in Urgent Care Medicine and a Diplomat. He also became a Fellow of the American Association of Integrated Medicine, and a Certified Medical Review Officer.

Dr. Buckman was the first US Physician to be accepted into the European Group for Breast Cancer Screening. He received some post-graduate training at Stanford University School of Business. He is also the Co-Founder of cancer.im, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for cancer research. Dr. Buckman also serves as CEO of Viratech Corp., which provides open source research using social networks.
