The Editorial Board of the Journal of the National Medical Association has dedicated this column in recognition of the outstanding aca-
demic, scientific, social and cultural accomplishments of NMA members in all aspects of the medical profession. It is anticipated that

career. Interested members are encouraged to contact the honorees directly. Submissions for this column are encouraged and should be
forwarded to email@example.com.
