My name is Dr. Lynda Kwon Beaupin and I’m a pediatric hematologist-oncologist at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Oishei Children’s Hospital. I have a special interest in adolescents and young adults with cancer and as survivors, as well as onco-fertility, which deals with fertility and family building issues and sexual health concerns among cancer patients. As a member of our division’s Solid Tumor Team, I also specialize in sarcomas and abdominal tumors.
At Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Oishei Children’s Hospital, I serve in these roles:
- Director, Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program
- Attending Physician, Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology
- Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, State University of New York at Buffalo.
I received my medical degree at Saba University School of Medicine in the Netherlands-Antilles. I completed my Pediatric Residency at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo in Buffalo, NY and my fellowship in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. I am board-certified in general pediatrics and pediatric hematology/oncology by the American Board of Pediatrics.
I am a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s AYA Guidelines committee and have worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study why the barriers to clinical trial enrollment of older adolescents with cancer. I currently serve on the Advisory Board for the Alliance for Fertility Preservation, and am a Board Member of Hope For Two, a support organization for pregnant women facing cancer.
I also hold memberships with the American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, American Society for Clinical Oncology, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Medical Society of New York.
