Dr. Kress will care for patients as part of the Smilow Classic Hematology Program at the Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Centers in North Haven and in Trumbull. Dr. Goshua will both see patients as part of the Smilow Classic Hematology Program and build the first research program in the country that is focused on decision-analytic modeling and health economics in classical hematology.
Dr. Kress received her medical degree from Columbia University where she also completed her residency. She will be an Assistant Professor of Medicine (Hematology).
