Dr. Amit Soni, Pediatric Hematology

With special interest in bleeding disorders, Dr. Amit Soni is dedicated to finding innovative ways to connect with teen patients with hemophilia. To this end, Dr. Soni has worked with a grant and special strategic communications training from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to create interactive media aimed at connecting with teens with hemophilia. The goal is to provide the teens with content and information about their disorder so that they may take control of their health and be armed with the knowledge they need as they transition into adulthood.
