Dixon Retires as Executive Director of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners


 
Larry Dixon

Larry Dixon has retired from his post as executive director of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners after serving over 35 years.

"It has been my privilege to serve Alabama's physicians and our staff because we are so much like family. I'm going to miss that," Dixon said.

Dixon established the Medical Association of the State of Alabama's education department, which has continued to flourish by producing original continuing medical education programs for Alabama's physicians, as well as nurse practitioners and CRNPs.

Dixon served four terms on the U.S. Federation of State Medical Boards and was the first president of the Administrators in Medicine. He has also served on committees of both AIM and FSMB. In 2009 he received the Meritorious Service Award from FSMB, and in 2014 FSMB awarded him the Lifetime Achievement Award. He was inducted into the Alabama Healthcare Hall of Fame in 2016, and the Medical Association honored him by renaming the building that houses the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners to the Dixon-Parker Building.

Dixon served seven terms in the Alabama Legislature and has been a member of the board of directors of the Montgomery Airport Authority; board member of the finance committee and past member of the administrative board of First United Methodist Church; charter member of the Certified Medical Board Executives; member of the advisory committee of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program; and member of the board of directors of the FSMB Research and Education Foundation.
