Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars Induction

Dr. David Allison, Associate Dean for Science in the School of Public Health, will be inducted in April into the Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars, an honor bestowed upon former Johns Hopkins postdoctoral fellows and junior or visiting faculty who have subsequently achieved marked distinction in their field. There are currently 551 members of this prestigious society which was created in 1967.

Dr. Allison completed his post-doctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins after completing his PhD from Hofstra University in 1990. Dr. Allison’s distinction is easily illustrated; in the past year alone, he has been elected to fellowship in the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, elected to the Institute of Medicine, and appointed to the Quetelet Endowed Professorship in Public Health by the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees.
