Dr. Arnold is an alum of Spelman College and Duke University School of Medicine. She completed her clinical training at Columbia University and specializes in pediatric hematology. She has particular expertise in the care of children undergoing stem cell transplantation for noncancerous disorders, such as sickle cell anemia and aplastic anemia. This field enables her to combine her joy in caring for patients with her love of research. She appreciates the bonds that she is able to form with the families of children with these diseases. It is her honor to shepherd them through some of the most challenging times in their lives.
In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Arnold conducts grant funded research. She has both a MBA and MPH that inform her outcome research to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of the therapies she uses. She hopes to show this by demonstrating that effective therapies are valuable because they enable children to grow up to become healthy, productive citizens in our society.
