Af­ter nearly seven years as se­nior VP and pres­i­dent of health and well­ness at Wal-Mart Stores, Dr. John Ag­wunobi re­signed from the po­si­tion this month.

Ag­wunobi, a pe­di­a­tri­cian, joined Wal­Mart in Septem­ber 2007 af­ter leav­ing his roles as as­sis­tant sec­re­tary for health at HHS and as an ad­mi­ral in the U.S. Pub­lic Health Ser­vice Com­mis­sioned Corps. He had also pre­vi­ously served for five years as Florida’s sec­re­tary of health.

As Wal-Mart’s top physi­cian, Ag­wunobi was re­spon­si­ble for over­sight of Wal­Mart’s health and well­ness busi­ness unit, which in­cludes phar­ma­cies, vi­sion cen­ters and health­care clin­ics in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Labeed Diab, who had been serv­ing as se­nior VP of Wal-Mart’s Mid­west di­vi­sion, stepped into the health and well­ness lead­er­ship role this month fol­low­ing Ag­wunobi’s de­par­ture. Diab, a reg­is­tered phar­ma­cist, has been with Wal-Mart since 2009 af­ter serv­ing as re­gional VP of Ara­mark Corp.’s health­care di­vi­sion.
