MusclePharm Corporation (OTCBB:MSLP) one of the fastest growing nutritional supplement companies in the United States, announced the appointment of Michael R. Stevens, PharmD as Director of Therapeutic Nutrition.

Dr. Stevens joins MusclePharm with over twenty years of well diversified experience in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. In addition to his current role as Chief Strategy Officer for Virostatics, Dr. Stevens spent 17 years at Bristol-Myers Squibb, where he held positions of increasing responsibility in the areas of Market Research (Oncology and HIV), Marketing (Oncology), and Medical Affairs (HIV).

"We are extremely pleased to have Dr. Stevens join the MusclePharm team and further strengthen our position in working to add MusclePharm's Re-con(NYSE:R) and MuscleGel(R) nutritional supplements to the New York State Medicaid list of prescription medications," commented Dr. Roscoe Moore, former United States Surgeon General, and Chief Science Director for MusclePharm. "With Dr. Stevens' extensive experience and assistance, we plan to further MusclePharm's support of therapeutic nutritional supplementation in the medical community."

Nutritional Supplementation has long been utilized within the HIV community to maintain and support muscle mass and help strengthen the immune system. Whey protein has been shown through various credible studies to aid in the growth of muscle mass. Unlike other Medicaid available proteins, MusclePharm's Re-con helps to burn fat while building muscle. This is a factor essential to people living with HIV, especially those on antiviral regimens where unwanted fat may be an issue in those who often battle muscle depletion.
