    The award was presented by Darin L. Haug, D.O., executive vice president for academic and medical affairs, and dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine, during the University’s faculty appreciation luncheon on the KCUMB campus.

    According to Dr. Haug, the award recognizes and honors a faculty member for his or her outstanding contribution to the University and its mission.

He is also medical director of Score 1 for Health, a KCUMB program that provides free health screenings to more than 13,000 children each year in the Greater Kansas City area.
