Boston Scientific has added a new member to its board of directors, naming Dr. Cheryl Pegus as the board’s latest addition, effective immediately. 

With over 25 years of experience in clinical and business leadership, Pegus joins the Marlborough medical device manufacturing firm having most recently served as partner at Morgan Health, a business unit of JPMorgan Chase working to enhance the quality, affordability and equity of health care headquartered in Washington, D.C., according to a Wednesday press release from Boston Scientific. Pegus has also served as executive vice president of health and wellness at Walmart and held executive leadership positions at Cambia Health Solutions and Walgreens. 

She has acted as board chair for the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) out of Washington, D.C., board member of the American Heart Association with headquarters in Dallas, and co-founded A New Beat, an organization of the ABC and the New York-based Cardiovascular Research Foundation, advocating for women and minorities leadership in the field of cardiology. 

"We are pleased to expand our board of directors with a highly respected, visionary clinical leader," said Mike Mahoney, Boston Scientific CEO and chairman of the board. "Cheryl is passionate about the role health care innovation can play in improving outcomes and expanding health care access, and we look forward to her contributions as Boston Scientific continues to grow and serve more patients around the world."

Pegus’ appointment succeeds the retirement of board members Nelda Connors and David Roux. Boston Scientific disclosed the retirement of Connors and Roux in a November U.S. Securities And Exchange Commission report.

Pegus earned her bachelors from Brandeis University of Waltham, her M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College of New York, and her M.P.H. from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health of New York.
