Abby R. Rosenberg, MD, MS, MA, is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington, with joint appointments in the divisions of Hematology-Oncology, and Bioethics & Palliative Care. She received her MD from Stanford University and did her pediatrics residency and fellowship training at Seattle Children’s and the University of Washington. Her additional training includes a Master of Science in Clinical Research Methods and a Master of Arts in Bioethics, both from the University of Washington.

She is the Director of the Palliative Care and Resilience lab at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, the Director of Pediatrics at the Cambia Palliative Care Center of Excellence at the University of Washington, and the Director of Survivorship and Outcomes Research in the Seattle Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. Her scholarship focuses on the intersection of medical, psychosocial, and bioethical issues involved in the care of children, adolescents, and young adults with serious illnesses. Specifically, she and her team endeavor to create evidence-based interventions to promote patient and family resilience. Current projects include several NIH-funded clinical trials testing her novel resilience intervention in populations of teens with serious illness, innovative resilience-coaching programs for front-line health care workers, and studies of communication and end-of-life needs among teens and young adults with advanced cancer.

Dr. Rosenberg is delighted to be speaking at the APHON 2021 annual conference, where she will share the inspiration behind her resilience research, key lessons learned along the way, and opportunities for pediatric oncology nurses to help patients and families in their daily lives.
