Members of The Dallas 40 believe it is imperative to learn more about important community issues by “drilling down” into a subject … listening to, learning from and interacting with those who are leading the way. Our speakers, all prominent in their own spheres of influence, address our meetings to educate our members on these issues and to enable them to influence the direction of our community based upon informed choice. By providing entree to circles of business, professional and community leaders, The Dallas 40 affords its members and invited guests the opportunity to engage the community’s best and brightest in a dialogue that makes a difference. The Dallas 40 is a nonpartisan organization, with membership open to men and women of all ages.

Dr. Haley is from a family of four generations of Texas physicians.  After medical school and an Internal Medicine residency in Dallas, he spent four years with the Centers for Disease Control as an Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer, after which he attended University of Virginia for a Masters in Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control.  He completed his training with an Infectious Diseases fellowship at Parkland in Dallas.

After he had acquired more letters after his name than in his name, his mother insisted that he actually go to work, so he became the County Epidemiologist for Dallas County.  Over the next 12 years he built a comprehensive disease control program to deal with AIDS and he built a community-wide collaborative childhood immunization program.  During that time he dealt with numerous smaller outbreak including an emergency room related tuberculosis outbreak and an intentional outbreak of Shigella dysenteriae.

For the last sixteen years, he has served as a Medicare Contractor Medical Director, first for TrailBlazer and now for Noridian.  He chairs a New Technology workgroup among all the Medicare contractor medical directors and he serves as an Observer to the Relative Value Update Committee.
