Scientific Advisory Board
The role of Medifast's Scientific Advisory Board is to continually review the effectiveness, safety, and nutritional benefits of Medifast's products and programs. The team of specialists also assists in the development of Medifast Meals and supplements, as well as weight-loss approaches for specific medical needs (e.g., patients with type 2 diabetes) or lifestyles (e.g., vegetarians). This cross-disciplinary group builds on Medifast's heritage-a medically sound approach to weight loss and the incorporation of leading-edge, clinical research into the company's products and programs.
