Kenneth Howard Clark, MD
Kenny is a Pennsylvania native who came to southern California in 2022 for treatment of his own addiction. Following an intensive 60-day residential program he came to Stairway Resource Center to continue his own care and establish a personal recovery program. Following his outpatient therapy at Stairway he felt drawn to work in the field of addiction, recently becoming staff at the facility that both saved and changed his life. Kenny now works as the Director of Medical Services at Stairway, where he serves more than 60 clients trying to manage the same disease that nearly cost him his life. He is a devoted member of Narcotics Anonymous and committed to the men and women of the Stairway Community.
Prior to his relapse in 2017 he worked as a medical examiner in both Allegheny and Onondaga Counties, and also held faculty appointments at Syracuse University (Adjunct Professor of Forensic Science) and Upstate Medical University (Assistant Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine). He formerly held 4 certifications from the American Board of Medical Specialties (anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, neuropathology, forensic pathology), as well as licenses in Pennsylvania, New York, and Mississippi. He also has a degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. Dr. Clark currently has an application for California medical licensure under review.
