We wanted to share this experience with trainees and to contribute to the next generation of pediatric hematologists/oncologists. In 2005, Dr. Henry started to develop a 3-year Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program, and the Program became accredited by the ACGME in 2008. Our first class of fellows started in the Program in 2010, and we celebrated our first graduates of the Program in June 2013. Dr. Henry also spends time teaching and developing part of the medical school curriculum at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, and he welcomes medical students from numerous institutions into his outpatient clinic on a regular basis. In addition, Dr. Henry enjoys delivering core educational didactic sessions to the residency program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
• Research interests: Dr. Henry is currently studying the possible therapeutic benefit of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the treatment of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. He also is mentoring a medical student from the University of Arizona in the study of the effects of obesity during treatment and eventual outcome in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.
