Maha Al-Ghafry MD

New York Blood Center

After obtaining her medical degree at Weill Cornell Medicine in Qatar, Dr. Maha Al-Ghafry achieved her dream of becoming a pediatrician by completing her residency at the University of South Alabama. Fascinated by the world of pediatric non-malignant hematology, Dr. Al-Ghafry furthered her training at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New York, where she was ensnared by the mysteries of hemostasis, thrombosis and transfusion medicine. As a transfusion medicine specialist with a pediatric hematology/oncology background, Dr. Al-Ghafry hopes to further research in pediatric patient blood management and add to evidence-based practices of blood product replacement in children. When not thinking about blood, she enjoys tracking down the best dessert in NYC, and taking walks along East river.
