Trailblazer. Revolutionary. Pioneer. Visionary. Pick the word you like best. They all mean virtually the same thing, and they describe a man who stepped into the unknown and, through bold innovation and impassioned vision, shed light on an entirely new path to health.
You can also call him by name—Dr. Myron Wentz. It’s synonymous with scientific brilliance and the kind of disruptive innovation that accelerates the sluggish pace of science—and changes the lives of millions in the process.
Dr Wentz’ Vision
You aren’t born with the passion and vision required to alter the world. If only it were that simple. The creation of monumental change comes at monumental cost, too often paid in the currency of personal tragedy.
At 17, Dr. Wentz lost his father to heart disease. He was the first of many family members taken too soon by degenerative disease. These traumatic events forced a talented young musician named Myron Wentz to look for solutions in his other love—science.
Over the course of his life, these losses galvanised into a purpose-driven vision to improve the health of people all over the world, to save them from living too short and dying too long.
And that vision has made possible the long list of innovations and accomplishments listed next to Dr. Wentz’ name: internationally recognized microbiologist, pioneer in the development of human cell culture technology, developer of the first commercially available diagnostic test for the Epstein-Barr virus, and winner of the Albert Einstein Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Life Sciences.
Dr Wentz’ is continuing to take our health to new levels with USANA and we’re excited about what the future holds.
