Dr. Chow is terrific at communicating honestly & medically in a way that is easy to understand during a very difficult time. I found Dr. Chow passionate & earnest in caring for the children on the hem/onc floor. And as a mother of a child who underwent cancer treatment at Seattle Children's, I always felt a greater sense of comfort knowing we were in the care of Dr. Chow.

Research Description

I am a pediatric oncologist whose research focuses on cancer survivorship. My group is interested in better understanding the burden and risk factors for various endocrine/metabolic (e.g. obesity, insulin resistance) and cardiovascular outcomes following childhood cancer therapy. To this end, we utilize data from medical records as well as prospectively bring patients back to clinic for various physiologic measurements. Our survivorship research also includes work examining various gene polymorphisms of interest and data linkage strategies utilizing state administrative databases.

Research Focus Area

Chronic Conditions / Special Health Care Needs, Epidemiology, Cancer
