CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medical Economics®, a multimedia platform that provides resources for physicians that include practice management tips, health technology and expert voices, is excited to welcome L. Allen Dobson Jr., MD, FAAFP, as editor-in-chief.
“Dobson’s focus on family and internal medicine in managing health care quality, as a clinical provider and policy adviser, has been the cornerstone of his distinguished career,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™. “We look forward to Dobson’s guidance as we continue to strive to provide the best content for physicians so they can succeed as both caregivers and businesspeople.”
Dobson has been practicing family medicine for over 40 years in his home state of North Carolina, where he serves as an adjunct clinical professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In addition to his clinical roles, Dobson is active in the development of health policy and is a frequent adviser to the National Governors Association.
