St. Louis, Mo. (May 24, 2022) — Karviva™ is excited to announce that Founder and CEO Angela  Zeng, PhD, has been accepted into the 2022 CVS Health & Roger Williams University Executive  Learning Series for diverse suppliers. 

The innovative program, which kicks off June 15th, is a business development training program to help CVS Health diverse-owned suppliers develop critical skills in finance, leadership, and technology.  Dr. Zeng created her plant-based smoothie company, Karviva (formerly Karviva Beverage), in 2017.  Zeng was born and raised in China before moving to the United States to pursue her advanced degree  in pathology and her MBA.

The CVS Heath & Roger Williams University Executive Learning Series comprises four months of  online instruction, executive coaching, workshops office hours, a capstone presentation, and  networking opportunities. 

“This is a very exciting opportunity for Karviva,” says Dr. Zeng, “It not only provides Karviva the  opportunity to work with CVS Health, but allows our team to be trained to work with one of the largest  retail pharmacy chains in the United States. I feel Karviva’s philosophy and product offerings are in  great alignment with those of CVS Health and we are grateful to Roger Williams University for hosting  this event. This is an important milestone for us to reach.” 

The Executive Learning Series is a cornerstone program in CVS Health’s ongoing focus on  supplier diversity. This is the 8th year for the program which includes more than 100 minority and  women owned business leaders.  

“The training continues to improve and build on past successes each year,” says Dawne Pezzuco,  Director of the Center for Workforce & Professional Development at RWU’s University College, “It has  made a positive impact for so many small diverse suppliers.
