Most recently, he participated in the Advanced Management Program of the Harvard Graduate School of Business in Boston, Mass. He also participated in the Program in Clinical Effectiveness of the Harvard School of Public Health, covering such areas as biostatistics, epidemiology, and health policy and management.

He also served as interim dean of the School of Medicine of the Medical College of Georgia from 1985 to 1986, and again in 1988. His professional activities have included the following: chairmanship of the Committee on Substance Abuse of the American Academy of Pediatrics (1990 to present); member of the Physician Task Force, National Training Systems, Office for Substance Abuse Prevention (1990 to present); member of the Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Committee of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (1990 to present); member of the Steering Committee of the Georgia General Assembly's Conference on Children of Cocaine and Substance Abuse (1990); and member of the National Advisory Council on Maternal, Infant and Fetal Nutrition of the US Department of Agriculture (1990 to present).
