    ATLANTA – Morehouse School of Medicine President John E. Maupin, Jr., D.D.S, M.B.A., was inducted into the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. in the field of “Medicine.”  The HBCU induction ceremony on Sept. 24 recognized Maupin for three decades of service and leadership to a single cause – improving the health and well-being of individuals and underserved communities.  The award recognizes alumni of Historically Black Colleges and Universities who have distinguished themselves as leaders in their respective fields.

    In accepting the award, Dr. Maupin stated, “It is a tremendous honor for me to join the ranks of so many accomplished scholars, leaders and educators who hail from one of the nation’s distinguished HBCUs. To stand here tonight is a testament of the impact and contributions graduates of historically black institutions are making everyday to change lives and communities.”
    President Maupin, the fifth president of Morehouse School of Medicine, was honored for his long and distinguished record in health care administration, public health, and academic medicine, as well as his reputation as a visionary, change agent, and public policy expert.

    Today, as President of Morehouse School of Medicine, Dr. Maupin leads the top-ranked medical school in the United States for social mission, and the only medical school to win a recent $500,000 U.S. Department of Education “Promise Neighborhood” planning grant.
