DNA Diagnostics Center (DDC)
Together with CEO Advisors, (headed by Jan Strode), Mouth Public Relations has been hired to represent the DDC (DNA Diagnostics Center), and their new paternity test, which launches on Tuesday, August 16, 2011. The test will only require a simple blood draw from the mother and alleged father, and is 100 percent safe and 99.9 percent accurate. As the largest provider of private DNA paternity and other DNA tests in the U.S. and worldwide for more than 16 years, DDC offers comprehensive DNA testing services for paternity and other family relationships, forensics, and ancestry.
