OGDEN – Having served many years as a medical practitioner and community advocate, Willard Maughan has received the Weber County Medical Society’s 2021 Medical Excellence Award.

He was named Weber County Doctor of the Year 2021 at a ceremony earlier this month.

“DR. Maughan embarked on a career in medicine and worked as a dermatologist, particularly helping those in need and helping those who may be sick have better lives. He has time for his community, scouting, military and educational institutions , Money and innumerable resources made available, “reads a blurb on the doctor of the medical society.

Lisa Lund, of the Weber County Medical Alliance, said the Doctor of the Year ceremony pays tribute to the efforts of doctors in the community. Maughan was honored on November 11th.

“The award of Doctor of the Year recognizes excellence and contribution to the community as well as an outstanding professional career,” said Lund. He’s retired as a dermatologist, she said, but has still been preoccupied with medical and social endeavors.

“Over the years I’ve been very involved in a variety of community projects including Catholic Community Services, Prevent Child Abuse Utah, Weber State Alumni Association, American Cancer Society, Weber County Medical Society, and Boy Scouts of America,” Maughan said in a statement that was part the ceremony on November 11th.

The medical society found that the roots of his commitment to the community stem from a demand his father made as a boy – “Be a good guy”. This mantra guided his life.

“In everything he’s done, he’s done his best to be a good guy. This created the conditions for a life of devotion and long service, ”said the medical society.

Lund received his medical degree from the University of Utah and did an internship at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He served as an aviation surgeon in the U.S. Army, graduated from major, and completed three years of specialist training in dermatology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He ran a dermatology clinic in Ogden for many years, along with many other medical activities in northern Utah.

In addition to his 36+ years as a medical professional, he served the Boy Scouts of America and Weber State University for almost two decades in various capacities for over 20 years. He was also instrumental in many roles for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He and his wife, Rona, have four children, “and they are our greatest achievement,” Maughan said.
