Distinguished Alumni Award

Bessie Chapman Jones, M.D. MPH, MS

As the first in her family to attend college, Dr. Bess Jones always dreamed of becoming a physician. 
When she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Talladega College in 1957, there was no money for her to attend medical school so she became an educator, married, raised a family and earned a Master’s Degree in Biochemistry from Indiana University in 1962. She was accepted into Morehouse School of Medicine’s third charter class in 1980 and went on to receive her M.D. from Emory School of Medicine in 1984, as well as a Master of Public Health Degree in 1986. But, it was MSM that she considered to be her true alma mater.
Dr. Jones returned to MSM as the first resident graduate of the Department of Community Medicine. While employed by the DeKalb County Board of Health to staff community health centers, she served the MSM National Alumni Association as treasurer for over 10 years and has been on the MSM Student Admissions Committee for nearly 20 years.

   


Now retired, Dr. Jones travels with her husband, Dr. Herb Jones, volunteering for medical service stateside and abroad. They have served the Red Cross, taught in the Gross Anatomy Lab, and continually care for babies in their home who are in the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.
In addition to their commitment to serve MSM, the dynamic duo created the Chapman Jones Memorial Endowment for special community projects in honor of their parents. Most recently, they established the Jones Family Fund to provide a $5000 student scholarship annually, with the goal of helping others to achieve their dreams.
“Of all our experiences, we most value our association with the MSM community.  We all do it for the students...for we see in them the future, the spirit and the mission of our beloved MSM.” – Bessie Chapman Jones, M. D.
