Dr. John M
John was a magna cum laude graduate of Princeton University and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and also a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar, graduating with an M.B.A. from Wharton. His early research, perhaps reflecting his background in business, delved into the reasons why physicians make clinical decisions. Later, he turned his focus toward health services research and increasing access to primary care for low-income patients. He served on numerous professional society committees, both as a member and as chairman. He was a tireless advocate for his research and a mentor to junior faculty and fellows.
In his spare time, he enjoyed riding dirt bikes on his Jigsaw ranch in Huntsville, Utah, with Joneen and their family. He was also a devoted husband, father and grandfather and served on a number of church missionary medical service-related committees. He was a great friend to many and will be missed. His influence and respect were far-reaching.
