Simplex Health Announces New Medical Advisor

Ambler, PA—Simplex Health, a progressive insurance-funded medical nutrition therapy practice, announced today that it has welcomed Robert Lustig, M.D., M.S.L., endocrinologist, best-selling author, and professor emeritus at the University of California, San Francisco, as the newest medical advisor.

Through a shared mission and philosophical alignment, Dr. Lustig will be offering his expertise and support to review internal scientific literature, aid in training & protocol development, and represent Simplex Health at various functions.

“I am honored and humbled that a long-time hero, scholar, and esteemed public health authority has joined us on our mission to advance a new paradigm of care and thinking about chronic diseases,” said David Rambo, Founder and CEO of Simplex Health. “Unbeknownst to Dr. Lustig at the time, his work illuminating the failures of the conventional approach to manage my type two diabetes and his research outlining the root causes was seminal in my type 2 diabetes reversal and subsequently, the inception of Simplex Health in 2015.”

Simplex Health regularly evaluates the composition of its developing board of advisors to ensure that it includes subject matter experts, experienced functional medicine professionals, and the unique perspectives necessary to drive better clinical outcomes for all Simplex Health patients.

“‘Einstein’s theory of insanity’ is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result. When you work downstream of a disease, you may think you’re treating the disease, but you’re not – you’re just treating the symptom. You have to work upstream to have a meaningful benefit.” said Dr. Lustig. “I’m delighted to serve as an education and content advisor to Simplex Health because they are directed at the correct points of the disease cycle. By focusing on the true drivers of chronic disease rather than the symptoms, they are turning health and healthcare around. I’m proud to lend my knowledge and expertise to their mission.”

Dr. Robert Lustig is currently an Emeritus Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco. He is a neuroendocrinologist by trade, seasoned author of peer-reviewed literature, New York Times best selling author, and a leading public health authority on the impact of sugar and diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity epidemics. Committed to impacting the food industry through policy changes that aim to reverse these chronic conditions, Dr. Lustig has been a member of several committees, including the Pediatric Obesity Devices Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Bay Area Board of Directors of the American Heart Association, and the Pediatric Obesity Practice Guidelines Subcommittee of the Endocrine Society. He is the Chief Science Officer of the non-profit Eat REAL. Dr. Robert Lustig brings a deep understanding of functional medicine to Simplex Health as a medical advisor.
