Stocks in this article: STNT

Stevia Nutra Corporation (OTC:QB STNT) – (The Company), an Agro-Management company focused on stevia agronomics, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Ian Bowmer, Executive Director of the Medical Council of Canada (MCC), to the Company’s Board of Directors.

Dr. Bowmer graduated from McGill University’s medical program in 1969 and went on to do his residency in internal medicine and infectious diseases at Royal Victoria Hospital and McGill University. He served as Dean of Medicine at Memorial University in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada from 1996 to 2003 and was appointed Executive Director of the Medical Council of Canada in 2007. Dr. Bowmer has garnered an abundance of policy development and governance experience within the Canadian medical community and is the recipient of several prominent awards for his work in medical education.

“Following the recent decision by Health Canada approving the use of steviol glycosides in a wide range of food and beverage products, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Ian Bowmer to our team,” says Company President Brian Dicks. “Dr. Bowmer’s leadership within the MCC and his knowledge and endorsement of the health benefits of stevia will bolster our on-going policy efforts to support stevia use in Canada and other jurisdictions. With his support we look forward to moving our advocacy agenda forward and warmly welcome Ian to our board.”

The recipient of several prestigious awards for his vision and contributions to medical education, Dr. Bowmer is one of the 13 non-governmental expert representatives on the Medical Council and Chair of the Working Committee.

“I am very excited to join the Company’s Board of Directors at a time where there is increasing recognition of the health benefits of stevia over traditional sugars and chemical sweeteners,” says Dr. Bowmer. “I look forward to engaging with government and private sector entities about the potential of stevia as a food and beverage ingredient, and the health benefits it offers to consumers, especially those battling diabetes and other obesity related illnesses.”
