Dr. Warner was known for his love and dedication to his family, profession and community. He was a tireless advocate for MSM. He served on the Board of Overseers of Morehouse College’s Medical Education Program when it was established in 1976. With the program’s transition to Morehouse School of Medicine and its separation from the College in 1981, Dr. Warner was elected as the first chairman of the Board of Trustees. He served in that capacity for almost a decade, giving generously of his time, energy and financial support. During the school’s developing stages, he helped to set the foundation that led to Morehouse School of Medicine being recognized as one of the nation’s leading community-based medical schools and a beacon of hope for medically underserved communities.
Dr. Warner served as a soldier in World War II, a leader in the Civil Rights movement, and a pioneer in the medical community. His guidance and community influence were essential to the development of Morehouse School of Medicine and helped to establish the School’s affiliation with Southwest Hospital, the home of its first accredited residency program, Family Medicine.
