Dr. M. Alfred HaynesThe Haynes Project is a testament to all that Dr. Haynes stands for and all that he has contributed to the world of medicine.

It’s no secret that there are health disparities between people of different races and ethnicities. But thanks to Moses Alfred Haynes, M.D., M.P.H., scores of underrepresented minorities received better access to healthcare and professional health education opportunities than they could have hoped to receive otherwise.

M. Alfred Haynes is a pioneer in addressing disparities in health status, access to care and professional health education opportunities for underrepresented minorities and the poor. Over the course of his long and distinguished career, he has been a major architect of social justice for black professionals in the health sciences. One of the first African-American faculty members at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Haynes played an important role in a national study titled, “Hunger U.S.A.” and contributed to establishing racial integration policies for the university. Following the Watts riots in Los Angeles, Dr. Haynes became an early faculty member and associate dean of the Drew Postgraduate Medical School, an institution he later served as dean and where he is now president emeritus.

Throughout his long and distinguished career, Dr. Haynes has made an impact on both patients and other medical professionals, serving as a doctor, a mentor, a professor and a dean. From his days as a medical officer with the U.S. Public Health Service to his appointment as president of the Drew Postgraduate Medical School, Dr. Haynes lived to serve and made the reduction of health disparities his mission. He transformed health care systems around the world and worked tirelessly to reduce cancer mortality in the African-American community.

The Haynes Project is a testament to all that Dr. Haynes stands for and all that he has contributed to the world of medicine. It is a place where information, stories, pictures, documents and tributes will be collected, highlighting the many accomplishments of Dr. Haynes and his wife, Mrs. Hazel Haynes.
