RIVER FOREST, ILLINOIS, August 22, 2012 /Worldwide Who's Who/
-- Jack Warren Salmon, Ph.D., Professor of Health Policy and Administration at the UIC School of Public Health, 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 his expertise in a critique of corporate for-profit medicine in the marketplace and international health issues. At his current post, Dr. Salmon is in charge of researching corporate medicine and pharmacy, complimentary and alternative medicine, urban health systems, international health, managed care pharmacy, and domestic health policy. He also teaches public health policy and administration and consults with others.
Dr. Salmon has written books on the corporate transformation of medicine, alternative medicine, and local public health reorganization. He attributes his success to his hard work, and is proud to have become involved in his profession after working at a print shop copying journals for a hospital at the beginning of the Medicare and Medicaid debates. Since the copy machines worked slowly back then, he read nearly all the information to stimulate his interest in health policy. Later on, he had wonderful mentors that prepared him for his Masters and doctoral studies in medical care organization and administration 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 historical involvement in international health issues. The highlight of his administrative career occurred early on in his twenties, when he was given the opportunity to pull together the five Philadelphia medical schools to secure NIH funding for an Arthritis Control Program across Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. A set of fine medical professors and their teams traveled to 17 arthritis demonstration clinics organized in a regionalized referral system to extend and upgrade rheumatological care. CME programs for health care teams, along with screening and patient/family education projects accompanied the overall effort.
Dr. Salmon received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the LeBow College College of Business and Administration at Drexel University, and went on to attend Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management, where he earned a Master of Science in Health Services Administration, and later, his Ph.D. in Medical Care Organization and Administration. He is an Adjunct Professor of International Pharmacy Administration at Chulalongkorn University, a Professor of Health Policy and Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a former Professor of Pharmacy Administration, and Urban Planning and Policy at UIC. In addition, Dr. Salmon is a member of the American Public Health Association, and the Business and Health Administration Association. He received the BHAA Healthcare Marketing Track and Medicare and Medicaid Track Awards, and was a recipient of the Individual Contribution Award, as granted by the Academy for Managed Care Pharmacy. Dr. Salmon was nominated for the Best Paper Award by the Business and Health Administration Association in 2007, and he received an Award of Excellence from the Academy for Managed Care Pharmacy for developing nationally recognized student managed care pharmacy. Other honors include the Outstanding Leadership Award for C-Chairing the United Way of Chicago's Health/Disability Needs Assessment Committee. Locally, he serves on the Board of the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, an advocacy organization. In the near future, Dr. Salmon will continue to teach, consult and conuct research; he is currently semi-retired.
