“An endowed chair is the highest honor that an academic institution bestows on its most distinguished faculty,” said UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D. “Those funds can be used for salary support, they can be used for investment in programs that advance knowledge, and the overall goal of an endowed chair is to provide some flexible funds in a very tight environment that the chair holder can use to invest in ways that advance the human condition.”

Moseley was presented with a commemorative medallion by Rahn and Stephanie Gardner, Pharm.D., Ed.D., senior vice chancellor for academic affairs and provost.

“This is a great personal honor to be the holder of the first Arkansas Medical Society Distinguished Dean’s Chair,” said Moseley. “The chair is really not about me, though, it’s about the position. I am most grateful that it has been established because of what it means for the College of Medicine and those we serve. I’m grateful because it’s what we as the college can do to work with the medical society to create value in our medical system.
