NORFOLK, Va. – We’re pleased to welcome a new pediatric hematologist-oncologist to CHKD, and also a pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor.

Dr. Kevin Todd - hematology and oncologyDr. Kevin Todd, a pediatric hematologist-oncologist, completed his medical school and residency training in Hampton Roads at Eastern Virginia Medical School and CHKD.

He returns having completed a fellowship in pediatric hematology-oncology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, where he focused his clinical and research efforts on bleeding and clotting disorders in children.

Even before he became a doctor, CHKD had a special place in his heart because his brother was born with trisomy 21, also known as Down syndrome, and received treatment at CHKD. "I have been inspired as a sibling, parent, and trainee at CHKD, and I’m ecstatic to serve as a partner alongside the tremendous staff that makes CHKD so phenomenal,” says Dr. Todd.
