Wolfson JulieSQUARE

Associate Professor


Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology

Dr. Wolfson is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist and health services researcher, with clinical expertise in hematologic malignancies and histiocytoses. She also founded and serves as the Director of the UAB-COA-O’Neal Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Oncology & Oncofertility Program, where she supports pediatric and adult oncology patients across UAB. Her goal is to inform academia, clinical medicine and health policy for children, adolescents and young adults with cancer, with a focus on vulnerable populations. With this in mind, her research program focuses on outcome disparities among adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer. Across a number of malignancies, she demonstrated the potential for care at NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers to mitigate poor survival in AYAs, and further identified barriers to accessing care at these sites. She has translated these and other findings into several multi-site studies, investigating this question in more depth. She is also co-PI of a large national registry focused on children with cancer and COVID-19 infections.
