Wake Forest University Law and School of Medicine Public Health Sciences Professor Mark Hall has been elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), a subset of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences.

Hall, the Fred D. & Elizabeth L. Turnage Professor of Law, is one of the nation’s leading scholars specializing in law, health care delivery, economics and bioethics. The Wake Forest community has high regard for Hall who, according to the IOM, is the only Reynolda Campus faculty member and the fifth School of Medicine faculty member to be elected to the Institute.

Wake Forest Provost Rogan Kersh praised Hall’s election to the IOM, stating, “Mark Hall is a virtuoso scholar and colleague. His is among the most prominent scholarly voices nationally on contemporary health-policy and health-law issues. Somehow he also manages to sustain a deeply devoted student following; serve as a key member of Wake Forest’s Center for Bioethics, Health and Society, which he helped found; and contribute in myriad ways to enhancing the life of both our law and medical schools–as one example, he is vice-chair of the search committee for a new law school dean.  What a magnificent choice for this high academic honor.”
