Today, Cox College announced that Dr. Lance Ratcliff has been named as the next president of the college.
Dr. Ratcliff has served as interim president since Aug. 1, following the retirement of Dr. Anne Brett.

The Cox College board of directors unanimously approved his appointment as president,” said Dr. John Duff, CoxHealth senior vice president and chief hospital officer.
Dr. Ratcliff attended Lakeland College in Sheboygan, Wis., graduating with degrees in biology and chemistry. He earned his MS and PhD in Nutrition and Food Science at Auburn University in Auburn, Ala., completed a dietetic internship at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C, and is a registered dietitian.
