Join us for a chat with Dr. David Gordon who will discuss his expansive career both inside and outside of Pathology. The virtual event will be held on Tuesday, July 21 from 8am-9am via Zoom Conference.

Dr. Gordon received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Amherst College, graduated from Harvard University Medical School, completed a one-year internal medicine internship at the University of Massachusetts (Worcester), then pathology residency and fellowship training at the University of Washington (Seattle), where he joined the faculty. He was recruited to the University of Michigan in 1991, and his focus has remained cardiovascular disease diagnosis, research, and teaching. He also collaborated with Pfizer Inc. (1997-2001) on cardiovascular drug discovery research. He has published numerous papers and continues to help others with cardiovascular research efforts.

Dr. Gordon is a professor of pathology and active emeritus faculty member at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Throughout his tenure, Dr. Gordon has educated medical students and young doctors about numerous diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases. His past leadership roles have included serving as the Associate Dean for Diversity and Career Development at the University of Michigan Medical School, Dean of the former School (now College) of Health Professions and Studies at University of Michigan-Flint, Dean of the College of Health Professions at the University of Akron (Ohio), and most recently, serving as the Associate Medical Director for the Hamilton Community Health Network, the largest federally qualified health center in Genesee County (Michigan). In this last role, he expanded his focus to working to improve the health of low-income/underserved patients, and for individuals returning from incarceration. All of these experiences have reinforced the great need for patient education and advocacy on an individual basis, and thus he started Take CHARGE of Your Health, LLC, of which he serves as the CEO.
