Dr. Jackson receives 2018 Medical Honoree Award

February 14, 2019
Posted In: Alumni Headlines, KCOM, University Headlines

Robert Jackson, DO, ’81, received the 2018 Medical Honoree Award from the Arthritis Foundation of Missouri. The award is presented annually to a member of the medical community who has dedicated his or her career to improving patient outcomes and reducing the suffering of those afflicted with arthritis.

Dr. Jackson is a rheumatologist in Kirksville, Missouri, and president and founder of Premier Specialty Network (PSN). PSN provides medical specialists to rural community and critical access hospitals where specialty care might not otherwise be available. PSN offers outreach specialists to hospitals in numerous states including Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Kentucky. Due to the shortage of rheumatologists in rural areas, Dr. Jackson also trains nurse practitioners in rheumatology and makes them available to numerous area hospitals through PSN.

Dr. Jackson currently sees patients in Hannibal, Macon, Milan, and Memphis, Missouri, as well as Bloomfield, Fairfield, Ottumwa, and Pella, Iowa. He previously served as associate dean of academic affairs, and chair and associate professor of internal medicine at A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine.

    Well deserved. Not only is he knowledgeable in Rheumatology but he is gifted in recognizing and teaching many cultural aspects of medicine. I’ve enjoyed all his talks at the Las Vegas seminars. Practical joint injection techniques, blended in his detailed observations from many of his worldly adventures, make the entire course worth attending.

  2. John C. Carson, D.O. says:

    Congratulation to a great physician and professor. His students from days gone by remember him for his great instruction in the classroom and the physical training hall as well.
