Former CCOM Distinguished Alumnus, Bradley Hyman, a 1982 PhD with Arthur Spector and a 1983 MD, 1988 resident and 1989 fellow, returns to campus to be lauded as a University of Iowa Distinguished Alumnus.

Penney, Jr. Professor of Neurology at Harvard, is an active physician scientist who directs the Alzheimer’s unit of the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease.

Congratulations to Drs. McGee, Hyman and Spector for these honors.
