Our Mission
Dr. Bowhay is a board-certified family practice
doctor from Jackson, California.  He has always
practiced in small towns seeing his first patients
in the villages of Mexico as a student at
Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. His
medical training took him to Houston, Los
Angeles, and San Francisco before returning to
Mexico to do social service for the university there,
teaching students how to practice in a primitive
setting. Family medicine residency took him to
Battle Creek, Michigan and later Pueblo, Colorado,
where after graduation he joined the teaching faculty, again, in rural
medicine.  From Colorado, he moved to Hawaii to be a plantation doctor
and began his own private practice. Students from Colorado followed him
there for rural training. For twenty years now, he has been in solo practice
in Jackson teaching students from the University of California in Davis,
and from the University of Phoenix. Dr. Bowhay’s interests, aside from
office and hospital practice, include minor surgery and anti-aging facial
enhancement procedures. Before medical school Dr. Bowhay studied at
Stanford University majoring in psychology, with a time at Stanford-in-
Austria. He has worked in oceanography for Stanford Marine Laboratories
from Ecuador to Canada and worked for Del Monte Seafood in the
Sultanate of Oman. The Global Medical Foundation has taken him to
Colombia, the Philippines and Thailand. His wife, Laurie, and his son,
Kevin are also valuable Global Medical Foundation veterans.
