My name is John D’Orazio; I received my medical degree from University of Miami, School of Medicine, Miami, Fla. I then completed a Pediatrics residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston and a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston.
I am board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in Hematology/Oncology.
I think it's very important to make a connection with patients and their families. I'll do anything to make that connection with the families because what I've learned is, to effectively take care of a child with cancer, you need everybody on board. It really does take a village and the most important part of that is the family and that child. One of the great things about being a doctor here at the University of Kentucky and at the Markey Cancer Center is our community of providers and support. We really are invested in the shared mission of trying to bring improved health care to the children and patients of Kentucky.

At a cooking demonstration with Markey Cancer Center dietitian Siddhi Shroff, our own physician/researcher Dr. John D'Orazio showed us how to make a creamy, silky risotto at home. As always, our cooking demos are free and open to everyone -- be on the lookout for the next demo!
