Preston Hollow resident Dr. Robert W. Haley has been a big name at UT Southwestern for decades. He founded the school’s Division of Epidemiology and Preventative Medicine in 1983 and has since received countless accolades for his research into hospital-acquired infections. More recently, The Dallas Morning News reports, “Haley and a team of researchers have amassed a body of medical evidence showing that exposure to chemicals” is likely responsible for the mysterious Gulf War illness affecting thousands of veterans.
Thanks to these achievements (and many more) Haley was just selected to receive a 2015 Award for Excellence (AFE) in Community Service by The Dallas Historical Society. Recipients “demonstrate robust generosity of spirit, civic leadership, and ability to encourage community-wide participation in a particular phase of the growth of the city.”
To celebrate Haley and his fellow AFE honorees, The Dallas Historical Society will host a luncheon at the Fairmont Hotel on November 19. For more information about the event, click here.
