National Physicians Cooperative member Leslie Appiah, MD, was featured in this month's issue of MD Update. Dr. Appiah is an active member of the NPC and is also the Director of Oncofertility at the University of Kentucky, which she recently established at the university. This is the second Oncofertility site she has established. In 2006, while working at Cinncinati Children's Hospital, Dr. Appiah built their oncofertility program as well. Dr. Appiah has relied on the work of the Oncofertility Consortium at Northwestern University to serve as her model for the two highly successful programs. She has worked with Dr. Woodruff and engaged with many other collaborators to develop treatment protocols so that all patients receive the same outstanding standard of care. Dr. Appiah's work with oncofertility is a true testament to her devotion to young pediatric cancer patients. She is truly a leader in the field.
