Gonzaba Expands Team with San Antonio’s Henry “Pepsi” Peña
“I can’t think of anyone more suitable to represent our medical group brand, than Henry “Pepsi” Peña and we look forward to having him bring his energy to keep our seniors active, healthy, informed and most of all to enjoy life and keep doing the things they love,” said Dr. Bill Gonzaba, Gonzaba Medical Group founder and CEO. ”Henry shares one of Gonzaba’s distinguishing attributes, because like Gonzaba, he’s from here and relates to the community in a personal and comfortable manner.”
Part of the Gonzaba Total Approach includes keeping their senior patients healthy, active and informed, by hosting events in the Gonzaba Event Center and venues across the city. With the onset of the pandemic, Gonzaba utilized their digital platforms to communicate and engage with their patients and San Antonio’s large senior population, launching Gonzaba Connection Wednesdays on Facebook as a way to bring weekly informative and entertaining content to be enjoyed by the entire family. Beginning in April, Peña will serve as host Gonzaba Connection Wednesdays.
As a renowned San Antonio personality Peña brings a trusted authentic voice as someone who genuinely knows the Gonzaba brand. He has been a brand ambassador, embodying the Gonzaba path for a healthier, happier you, and has served as a host for various Gonzaba events in recent years highlighting the importance of quality healthcare.
“It is an honor to be able to collaborate with one of San Antonio’s legacy companies, Gonzaba Medical Group,” said Peña. “Over the years, I have personally experienced and observed Gonzaba’s commitment to our seniors and to our San Antonio community. It is impressive and I look forward to being a part of the continued success of Gonzaba.”
Launched on April 8, 2020, Gonzaba Connection Wednesdays features its physicians sharing information on health topics such arthritis pain management, foot health, hernias, breast cancer awareness, women’s health, men’s health, mental health, and general health and wellness information such as voting during a pandemic and life after quarantine.
