The American Medical Association (AMA) recently awarded one of its highest honors to a Midwestern University graduate. Terrie Taylor, D.O., a 1981 graduate of Midwestern University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, received the AMA's Dr. Nathan Davis International Award in Medicine. The award is named for the founder of the AMA and recognizes physicians whose influence reaches the international patient population and changes the future of their medical care.

Dr. Taylor is an internationally renowned malaria researcher focusing on childhood malaria in the east African republic of Malawi. She treats malaria patients and conducts research on the disease that kills as many as 1 million children in sub-Saharan Africa every year.

Dr. Taylor is a professor of internal medicine at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. She will be honored at the AMA Excellence in Medicine Awards dinner this February in Washington, DC.
