Misra joins Endowment board of directors

Dr. Dwijen Misra has joined the board of directors of the United States Air Force Academy Endowment. He is a vascular surgeon with Metro Vein Centers in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Dr. Misra’s eldest son, Benjamin, graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 2012; his daughter, Mary, graduated from the Academy in 2014; and his son, Nathanial, is a cadet in the class of 2020. Dr. Misra serves as the inaugural chair of the Parents Leadership Council, coordinated by the Endowment’s Parent and Family Giving program.

“As an Academy parent three times over, I am fully vested in the activities of the Academy and its future success,” Dr. Misra says. “It has been the best journey of my life, and I am honored to be able to give back by serving as a board director for the Endowment.”

He and his late wife were former presidents of the Eastern Michigan Air Force Academy Parents Club.

“Dr. Misra brings a truly unique family perspective to our board,” says Jack Kucera, chairman of the board of directors. “He brings not only extensive professional experience, but also the message and sentiments of our young Air Force officers and cadets. We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Misra serving on our Endowment board and look forward to working with him.”

Dr. Misra earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and completed his medical studies at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit. He completed his surgical residency at William Beaumont Hospital in Michigan.

Dr. Misra was a private practice surgeon and attending surgeon at William Beaumont Hospitals for over 25 years. Licensed to practice medicine in Michigan and Indiana, he is a board certified general surgeon through the American Board of Surgery and has been elected a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has been involved in surgical mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Brazil and Guatemala.
