Herbalife appoints first Filipino Doctor in Nutrition Advisory Board

Global nutrition company, Herbalife welcomes Dr. Francis Gregory Samonte, an expert in pediatric neurology, to become the first Filipino appointed to its prestigious Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB), effective January 1, 2016.

Samonte’s appointment further strengthens the Herbalife NAB members to 30.

He was a recipient of the Chairman’s Achievement Award, Department of Pediatrics, University of Louisville, Kentucky, and his affiliations include the Philippines Medical Association.

In tandem with his distinguished career in medicine, Samonte is active in supporting charities, notably through being a member of the Board of Directors of Community Based Resources in Zambales.
