Don was interested in developing advances in the medical field that would allow a physician to practice state of the art medicine with a verifiable patient benefit. Don was involved with the ACP throughout his career as a speaker, a meeting planner and was instrumental in organizing regional ACP meetings with Idaho and Montana. The Third Laureate Award from the WY ACP Chapter was given to Don in 1992.
