Dr. Clark Stanford, Dean of the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry and UIC Distinguished Professor, was named a Fellow of the Institute of Medicine of Chicago.
“The IOMC is an independent organization of distinguished leaders in the health field who collaborate to improve the health of the public,” said Dr. Stanford. “Dr. Caswell Evans, Associate Dean for Prevention and Public Health Sciences, nominated me; it was very nice of him.”
After approving the nomination, the IOMC invited Dr. Stanford to apply, resulting in his being named a Fellow.
Drawing on the expertise of its members and health leaders in the region, the IOMC addresses critical health issues through a range of interdisciplinary approaches including, education, research, communication, and community engagement. The organization also works to address health disparities in Chicago and to enhance the leadership skills of community health workers. It was established in 1915.
