THE JOURNEY: “Dr. Andrea Hayes – A Physician Making History at Howard University”


Some of our nation’s most renown and influential physicians have served as the chair of surgery at Howard University’s hospital and College of Medicine.  From Charles R. Drew and LaSalle D. Leffall to Clive Callender and Edward Cornwell, the individuals who have held this position have left behind a strong legacy of medical innovation and social impact.  On today’s episode of “The Journey,” President Frederick talks with Dr. Andrea Hayes, the new chair of the Department of Surgery at Howard University College of Medicine and Howard University Hospital and the first woman to occupy this position.  Her skills and experience as a leading pediatric cancer surgeon are already empowering her to take the Department of Surgery to new levels of excellence.
