Alliance Retired Physicians Membership/Program Committees

Surely one of the more celebrated physicians in the country, Dr. Stone began his medical journey with an MD with Honors from University of Chicago, served as a clinical associate at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland and then came to Dallas as a senior resident in medicine at Parkland Memorial Hospital, followed by a fellowship in hematology-oncology. After serving as an Associate Professor at UT Southwestern, he moved to Baylor University Medical Center/Dallas in 1976 to become the first Chief of Oncology and Director of the new Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, positions he held until 2008, while continuing to serve as Clinical Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at Southwestern. With over 250 published articles and book chapters, countless awards for his teaching and demonstrated medical expertise, including Lifetime Achievement Awards in Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia and also from the American Osler Society in 2015, he was honored by Baylor with a lectureship, education center and library in his name. Across the pond, Dr. Stone was inducted into Fellowship in the Royal College of Physicians (London) in 2019.  Dr. Stone is also chief emeritus of hematology and oncology at Baylor University Medical Center, Professor of Internal Medicine (Affiliated) at Texas A&M College of Medicine, Clinical Professor of Humanities at University of Texas at Dallas and a member of the Southwestern Medical Foundation Board of Trustees.   

The Position

Dr. Stone chairs the formation of the Alliance Retired Physicians as a membership group that would provide opportunities for continued community service as well as high-caliber programs and events to bring men and women who have shared interests, ideals and experiences in medicine together for continued intellectual growth and camaraderie. Dr. Stone was particularly attracted to the idea of serving as a tutor in the Bayles Elementary School Reading Partners project, the newest outreach project for the Alliance.
