    Dr. Kamalakar’s burning interest in hematology was lit during his pediatric residency at The Beth. Following his fellowship he joined the medical staff at The Beth in 1978 and the hem/onc services he initiated there became a Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in 1985.
