Moreover, he is also a former vice president of the Alabama Association of Pathologists, and remains a member of the Cobb County Medical Society and the Medical Association of Georgia.

Studying at the prestigious Harvard University in 1958 and 1959, Dr. Huber later completed his premed studies at Emory University in Atlanta where he achieved both a Bachelor of Arts in 1960 and a Doctor of Medicine in 1964.
