In 2007 Dr. Howell was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Duke University Medical Alumni Association.

Pursuing a career path as both a doctor and a geneticist, Dr. Howell also became a teacher and mentor to many young medical students and a skilled administrator who could meld the views of many into an accepted consensus. He has been a leader of many causes, most notably as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

But it is in the field of pediatrics and genetics where Dr. Howell has done the most good.

"Dr. Howell is one of those people who always tries to do the right thing for the right reasons," said Dr. Daniel Armstrong, a professor and associate chair and Director of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Miami.

"And he has also blended a career that has been able to bridge the development of the field of genetics along with the development and transition of the field of pediatrics and children's health. When Rod started his career,
