Earlier this month, Mobeen Rathore, MD, a professor and associate chair of pediatrics at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, was installed as the 41st president of Leadership Jacksonville. Established in 1976, the organization helps area leaders become further engaged in the local community through various educational and networking initiatives.  

Mobeen, chief of pediatric infectious diseases and immunology and director of the UF Center for HIV/AIDS Research, Education and Service (UF CARES), is the first UF faculty member — and only the second physician — to be named president of Leadership Jacksonville.

This is the latest in a long list of prominent civic and professional leadership roles Rathore has assumed in recent years. In January, he began serving on the sub-board on pediatric infectious diseases for the American Board of Pediatrics, which certifies physicians in more than 20 specialties.

Last year, he was elected to the Florida Medical Association’s Board of Governors. And in 2014, he became president of the Duval County Medical Society, an organization he’s been a member of for 26 years.
