Plexus Worldwide announced that NASA Chief of Flight Medicine and Chief of Medical Operations Dr. Jim Logan has joined its Medical Advisory Board.
As a Medical Advisory Board member, Dr. Logan will help guide product development using his experience as a medical doctor and his passion for sharing preventative practices.
“Plexus is thrilled to welcome Jim to our team because he is committed to helping people achieve a healthy lifestyle through the art of combining science-backed products with motivational strategies,” said Tarl Robinson, CEO and founder of Plexus. “His insight and passion in helping people live happier, healthier lives is already inspiring our team.”
Dr. Logan is Board Certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and spent 22-years at NASA Space Center serving as chief of flight medicine and chief of medical operations. Among his top priorities was to care for American astronauts and their families for 25 Space Shuttle missions by optimizing their health and preventing medical issues.
“I am excited to work with the team at Plexus to help people around the world work towards whole body wellness using a team approach that leverages the power of science to reach maximum health potential,” said Dr. Logan. “My personal philosophy of medical care is that prevention is vastly superior—medically, financially and emotionally—to aggressive, long-term and invasive treatments that result from significant medical issues.”
“Having known Jim for many years, I have seen first-hand how passionate he is about helping people achieve and maintain good health, whether they are an astronaut or a stay-at-home mom,” said Christopher Pair, president of Operations and International.
Dr. Logan has published dozens of peer-reviewed articles and is an accomplished speaker on the global stage, having been awarded NASA’s Distinguished Speaker Award. He is also a founding board member of the American Telemedicine Association, and the co-founder of Space Enterprise Institute, a 501(C)(3) that serves to educate public, private and governmental groups about human activity in space.
