Jack Warren Salmon, Ph.D. Recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for Excellence in Health Professions Edu

August 22, 2012

Jack Warren Salmon, Ph.D., has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in health professions education. For more than 40 years, Dr. Salmon has remained passionate about developing expertise in a critique of corporate for-profit medicine and international health issues. Dr. Salmon has researched corporate medicine and pharmacy, complimentary and alternative medicine, urban health systems, international health, managed care pharmacy, and domestic health policy. Dr. Salmon has written books on the corporate transformation of medicine, alternative medicine, and local public health reorganization. He is proud to have begun his profession working at a hospital print shop copying journals during the Medicare and Medicaid debates. Since the copy machines worked slowly then, he read nearly all the information to stimulate his interest in health policy. Later, he had wonderful mentors that prepared him for his Masters and doctoral studies in medical care organization at Cornell. Being a child of the 60s and influenced by its social movements, his values in health policy were shaped to advocate for social justice and equity in healthcare. This continues in his international health studies.
