Hugh Bonner, Ph.D., named to federal health care advisory panel

Hugh W. Bonner, Ph.D., dean of the College of Health Professions at SUNY Upstate Medical University, has been named to a federal panel that advises the U.S. secretary of health and human services on medical education and community-based health programs.

Bonner was named this week to a three-year term on the 21-member Advisory Committee on Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Linkages of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The appointment was made by Tommy Thompson, secretary of health and human services.

HRSA, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, administers funding for primary health care programs in underserved areas, HIV/AIDS and maternal and child health programs as well as health professions training.

Prior to joining SUNY Upstate in 1995, Bonner served as associate dean for the School of Allied Health at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and program director in health affairs for Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. His research efforts most recently have addressed the development of partnerships between community organizations, agencies and educational institutions to attract students to careers in health care.

Bonner sits on numerous advisory boards, including the New York State Board of Respiratory Care and the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions, among others.

Bonner earned a doctorate from University of California at Berkeley, a master’s degree from California State University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota.

Bonner resides in Jamesville.
