This year’s 60 Days to Better Health series is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museumand Library Services (IMLS), an independent federal agency that grows and sustains a “Nation of Learners,” because lifelong learning is critical to success.

Most recently, he earned a master’s of public health from the University of Liverpool, England where he researched the social determinants of health and health policy. He was board certified in family medicine in 1979 and sports medicine in 1999. He served as vice chancellor for Health Sciences in the Nevada System of Higher Education from 2007-2009.
