    CLARKSBURG, MD, April 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Althea Green has been included in Marquis Who's Who. 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.

Backed by years of expertise in the military, Dr. Green worked as the director of recruitment for the U.S. Department of Defense's F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine from 2012 until her retirement from federal service in 2022. During the early stages of her career, she dedicated herself to the U.S. Army as a soldier, trainer, educator and mentor, and rose through the ranks to serve as the senior enlisted adviser to the Army Surgeon General. Likewise, Dr. Green lent her considerable knowledge on the executive leadership team at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command, Fort Detrick, and the Southeast Regional Medical Command.

Outside of her work, Dr. Green contributed to her community through a local women's veteran organization, and on the board of an educational society for healthcare professionals. Driven to remain abreast of changes in the field, she aligns herself with the Society for Human Resource Management, the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education, Women in Defense, AMSUS - The Society of Federal Health Professionals, the American College of Healthcare Executives, and the Association of the United States Army. She is also involved in research and academic writing.

An expert in her field, Dr. Green holds a Bachelor of Science in business administration and management from the University of Maryland Global Campus. Subsequently, she completed the Army's sergeants major course in organizational leadership through the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy and earned a Master of Science in business and organizational management from the University of La Verne, as well as a PhD in educational leadership from Keiser University. A point of great satisfaction was earning her bachelor's and master's degrees while serving in the Army full time and raising a family.

While her career has been filled with highlights, Dr. Green takes the most pride in maintaining responsibility for 65,000 enlisted medics in the U.S. Army, through which she was able to restructure the enlisted medical force to create several new specialties and create promotion opportunities at the higher ranks. Another standout moment was helping Walter Reed Army Medical Center improve the system of care for wounded, ill, and injured servicemembers during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Later in her career, she helped to design and became the inaugural director of the Department of Defense's premedical post-baccalaureate program for enlisted service members.

In recognition of her outstanding body of work, she won the Faculty Excellence Award from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences' F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine. Likewise, she won a Distinguished Service Medal and two Legions of Merit from the U.S. Army, and the Order of Military Medical Merit from the Army Medical Regiment.

Within the next five years, Dr. Green aims to influence others and help them achieve their goals.
