Pediatric Hematologist

Dr. Freeman graduated from medical school in the United Kingdom and registered with the General Medical Council after completing her rotating internships. She moved to Florida in 1986 and started her residency in Pediatrics and a fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology with the University of Florida. This work led her to an interest in several aspects of Public Health: preventative health, access to health care, social determinants of health, effects of stress on health, wellness and chronic disease, adverse childhood experiences and teaching children resilience, implantation of national standards of care and health inequities.

In 2017 Dr. Freeman made the transition to professional locum work, which was an opportunity to experience a variety of health care settings across multiple geographic regions and social environments. In 2019 she completed her training in medical acupuncture. Dr. Freeman has previously worked internationally in the UK and Canada, single payer systems of health care. For a brief period in Canada, she worked in a level 3 NICU. She has also provided support to the transfusion services and patient blood management up until 2017.
