AACOM’s Joining Forces Advisory Group recently appointed Paul Evans, DO, Vice President and Dean of Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) to serve as the new chair, effective April 2013. He succeeds the group’s inaugural Chair, Marc B. Hahn, Executive Vice President of Academic and Medical Affairs, Provost and Dean at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCUMB-COM). Dr. Hahn was honored for his service to the group at the Annual AACOM Awards Banquet held at the Joint AACOM & AODME 2013 Annual Meeting in April, which featured a special Joining Forces program track.
The Joining Forces Advisory Group was founded in 2012 after AACOM and its member colleges and branch campuses pledged their support to the national Joining Forces initiative. The group, which comprises several expert faculty and administrators from across the nation, was established to coordinate and provide counsel for AACOM’s Joining Forces efforts.
