Harry Barnes, MD Endowment Leadership Grant

On May 16, 1927, Dr. William Harry Barnes became the first African-American board certified medical specialist. At the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting in Boston, MA a group of dedicated physicians came together to honor the legacy of Dr. Barnes and to continue his good work by establishing the AAO-HNSF Harry Barnes, MD Endowed Leadership Grant.

Your gift to the Harry Barnes, MD Endowed Leadership Grant will ensure additional awareness is brought to the otolaryngology community about Harry Barnes, MD. Your generosity will help bring increased leadership development opportunities for otolaryngologist—head and neck surgeons of African descent from the United States, the Caribbean and Canada.

This endowed grant, once fully funded, will pave the way for a meritorious resident to receive a prestigious Resident Leadership Grant to attend the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting and the AAO-HNS/F Leadership Forum.
