Dr. Glenn Jones was named the 2008 Virginia Young Internist of the Year.
Dr. Glenn Jones was named the 2008 Virginia Young Internist of the Year by the American College of Physicians, the academic and professional association for Internal Medicine physicians. The award was decided by the Virginia chapter’s Awards Committee, which includes a past president of the American College of Physicians, the current Governor of the Virginia chapter and the Director of Medical Services at the National Naval Medical Center. Five letters of support were required and were submitted by physicians from around the state, including one from his EEC colleague Dr. Charles Lisner. The award is designed to recognize excellence in leadership within the profession, academics, medical research, teaching and mentoring, and volunteerism. Dr. Jones is Chair of the 2008 Virginia ACP Annual Scientific Meeting being held in Williamsburg, and chairs several committees on the Governor’s Council. He served as Chairman of Medicine at Danville Regional Medical Center and volunteered as an attending physician at the Danville Free Clinic before he joined the Dedicated Care Center in July 2007. He has been a principal investigator or sub-investigator on over 40 pharmaceutical clinical trials involving diabetes, heart disease, inflammatory bowel diseases and emphysema. He has taught medical students since 2003 in his role as Visiting Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Virginia. He will receive his award at the Virginia ACP’s annual meeting in March.
