President of Dobson | DaVanzo, Al Dobson, has been presented with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by Marquis Who’s Who. Out of the 1.5 million individuals nominated, only a small percentage are selected for this recognition.

In Dr. Dobson’s 50 years of professional experience, he served as Senior Vice President of the Lewin Group and Director of the Office of Research for the Health Care Finance Administration (now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) when the Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System was developed and implemented. More recently, he co-founded a successful health economics and policy consulting firm in the Washington, DC area.

Throughout his career, Dr. Dobson has been affiliated with multiple professional membership organizations, has authored and reviewed numerous peer reviewed articles in professional journals and has been honored with numerous public and private sector recognitions and awards. The Marquis recognition complements a much earlier recognition as one of the nation's most influential health care policy leaders by Faulkner and Gray.

For more than a century, Marquis Who’s Who has profiled the lives of individuals with significant achievements from all fields including politics, business, medicine, law, education, art, religion and entertainment.
