Among his many positions in education and medicine, Harry Greene’s extensive career includes three years of medical residency and Chief Medical Resident at Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston; Assistant Dean of Students at Westminster College; Vice Chairman of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts; and right here at the University of Arizona, he served as Associate Professor, Vice Chairman Of Medicine and Head of Primary Care. Harry has also served on the boards of the Massachusetts Medical Society, American Cancer Society, Hope Lodge, Central New England College, and Central New England Health Plan.

Harry has filled the role of both author and publisher throughout his career. His books include “Introduction to Clinical Medicine,” “Primary Care Medicine,” “Algorithmic Approach to Medicine,” and “Current Therapy in Adult Medicine,” to name a few. In addition to publishing many medical papers and reports, including the “Morbidity and Mortality Report” for the CDC, he developed the New England Journal of Medicine Publishing Group and served as publisher of the New England Journal of Medicine. He has also been involved with writing award-winning legislation—the Children’s Health Care Bill—in partnership with Charles Baker and John McDonough.

Harry also places great value on volunteerism and community involvement. He assisted with the establishment of the first Ronald McDonald House in Brookline, MA; and was founder of the first Hope Lodge in MA (a home for cancer patients and their families during prolonged radiation/chemotherapy treatments), for which he received an award from the American Cancer Society. He served as a physician volunteer at the Worcester Free Health Care Clinic. Locally, he has been a member of the Naranja Park Planning Committee.

In addition to his work in the field of medicine, Harry is an accomplished artist and strong supporter of the arts. He enjoys painting oil portraits, teaches anatomy for artists and has helped implement several art exhibit programs, such as Arts in the Park, Ventana Art Exhibit and the Overlook Art Exhibit. Harry has also served in leadership roles in the arts community, including President of the Southern Arizona Arts Guild, and Chair of the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council (now SAACA).

Harry “Mo” Greene is married to Linda Clark Greene, RN. They have three children: Harry, Lt. Commander in the Coast Guard; Michelle Moynihan, RN, and Jennifer Reynoso, RN. They also have five grandchildren.
