Cindy Schwartz, MD, MPH, is an accomplished oncologist who brings 35 years of experience, passion and expertise in the areas of Hodgkin lymphoma, osteosarcoma and childhood cancer survivorship. Her national leadership in these areas is reflected in her significant clinical trials experience, and her development of long-term survivorship programs at several institutions.
She was trained in pediatrics and pediatric hematology/oncology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and received her medical degree from Brown University Program in Medicine. Most recently, she was division head and chair of Pediatrics, ad interim, and director of Clinical and Translational Research in Pediatrics at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Dr. Schwartz came to Children’s Hospital because of the focus – on every level – on children’s health and the expertise of the outstandingly committed faculty. She looks forward to serving patients and to continuing to lead cutting-edge research that can transform the approach to treatment of cancer in children.
