BALTIMORE, MD, July 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Janet Horn, MD, FACP, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Horn celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Janet Horn is a physician who has practiced medicine since 1978. Dr. Horn began her career as an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She served for 20 years on the faculty, the first five of which were in a full-time status and the remainder in a part-time status. She was promoted to Associate Professor of Medicine in 1995.
Dr. Horn has been involved with numerous faculty and professional activities. She was Assistant Chief for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) for the Baltimore City Health Department under an agreement between the City of Baltimore and Johns Hopkins in 1986-1987. She was Director of Ambulatory Infectious Diseases at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, a hospital whose training programs are affiliated with Johns Hopkins, in 1989-1990. She founded a large private practice in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases in 1990 and led that practice for 12 years. During this time, she maintained active staff privileges at three Baltimore hospitals.
In 2006, Dr. Horn became an attending physician (on a volunteer basis) at the Shepherd's Clinic, which provides health care for the uninsured in Baltimore. She has continued to serve patients at Shepherd's Clinic on a regular basis to the present. The Shepherd's Clinic is an unusual health care institution, in that it provides free care primarily to those who are employed but cannot obtain health insurance from their employer or affordably through government sponsored programs. Dr. Horn has been a key member of the Clinic's medical staff for 13 years and routinely serves a group of patients who are likely not to have health care available absent her volunteering as a physician. She has also been involved in advising the wellness programs at the Clinic.
Dr. Horn is the co-author of a book entitled The Smart Woman's Guide to Midlife and Beyond: A No-Nonsense Approach to Staying Healthy After 50. The Wall Street Journal called this book, published in 2008 by New Harbinger Press, the best health book of that year. Dr. Horn made numerous appearances in conjunction with the publication of this book, and she and her co-author maintain a website related to the book at www.smartwomanshealth.com.
Beyond this major book on woman's health, Dr. Horn has authored numerous chapters of medical textbooks, many manuscripts and journal articles, and some ten abstracts related to her research. Her literary efforts have not been restricted to her profession, however. She worked very closely with her long-time friend Agathe Von Trapp to create a memoir about the Trapp Family Singers entitled Agathe: Memories Before and After "The Sound of Music," published in 2003 by Providence Publishers.
In terms of her civic activities in Baltimore, Dr. Horn was appointed by the Mayor of Baltimore as Chair of the AIDS Coordinating and Advisory Council. This Council reported directly to the Mayor and helped to formulate the city's policy regarding AIDS and HIV. She led the Council from 1988 to 1992. Dr. Horn was also a member of the Greater Baltimore HIV Planning Council for Ryan White Title I funds. She served on the Board of Directors of the Chesapeake AIDS Foundation and the League for People with Disabilities in Baltimore. She has held numerous committee positions at the hospitals in which she practiced.
The honors and awards that Dr. Horn has achieved include the Internal Medicine Associates Award for Outstanding Achievement in Patient Care at Georgetown University Hospital (1983), the Pearl M. Stetler Foundation Research Award at Johns Hopkins (1987), the Merck Foundation Clinician Scientist Research Award at Johns Hopkins (1988), the Mayor's Citation for Outstanding Civic Service to the City of Baltimore (1992), Best Doctors in Baltimore from Baltimore Magazine (1996), Best Doctors in the Southeast (1998), Best Doctors in the United States (1999), Top 100 Women in Maryland from The Daily Record (1999), and the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award (2019).
As to her education, Dr. Horn completed her undergraduate studies at Vanderbilt University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree magna cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
