UAMS Elevates Kohler Endowed Professorship To Endowed Chair

A distinguished professorship is established with gifts of $500,000 to support the educational, research and clinical activities of the chair holder. An endowed chair is established with gifts of $1 million. The additional funds, which came from endowment investments, a donation from the Faculty Group Practice matching fund and a second donation by Dr. Kohler, will allow the chair holder, Sheldon Riklon, M.D., to focus even greater efforts on research and clinical treatment of health disparities among the Marshallese and Pacific Islander population in northwest Arkansas.

An endowed chair is among the highest academic honors a university can bestow on a faculty member. Those named to a chair are among the most highly regarded scientists, physicians and professors in their fields.   MORE
