Raj, M.D., medical director, Norton Children’s Cancer Institute, and division chief of pediatric hematology/oncology for the University of Louisville School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics.

After medical school, Dr. Zhao completed her medical residency in pediatrics at Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin and then a fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Arizona.
