Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers has had a profound effect on the lives of children in Houston and throughout the country through its exceptional patient care and cutting-edge research. The Center, a joint program of Baylor and Texas Children’s Hospital, also is extending its reach far beyond our borders.

The symposium was held April 7 in the Texas Medical Center.
