Kristin Schroeder, MD, MPH, graduated from ACDS in 1993. She completed Pediatric Hematology-Oncology and Neuro-Oncology Fellowships at Duke University, a Pediatrics Residency at UNC Children’s Hospital, earned a MPH at West Virginia University and an MD from Georgetown.
Dr. Schroeder is a Board Certified neuro-oncologist currently pioneering work with The Global Pathway, in partnership with Duke University, at Bugando Medical Center in Mwanze, Tanzania to improve access to chemotherapy and life-saving medications for pediatric cancer patients in Tanzania.
Always an avid science student, Kristin noted that, “ACS fostered an environment that encouraged individuality and academics, that gave me the foundation and confidence to do what I am doing today!” She invites any ACDS alum interested in global health to visit Tanzania.
Kristin is a co-founder of the non-profit, i-ccare.org, which was started after realizing the need to provide for the cost of cancer care in low to middle-income countries.
