Description

This investigation raises a number of questions about a county medical director. While working full time as medical director, he also works full time as a professor at an area university despite a state law that forbids workers holding two full-time government jobs. The state health department funnels his salary through the university to avoid the appearance of two jobs, while the university declined to provide a schedule of his lectures. Meanwhile, his lack of education and experience in administration has led to lawsuits and criticism of program cuts and job lay-offs. A planned follow-up story will reveal how the director has given the university $5 million in county health department contracts.
