Dr. Elizabeth Seashore is a specialist in both pediatric oncology and pediatric palliative care. As an oncologist, she cares for children undergoing treatment for blood cancers and solid tumors. In her role as a palliative care doctor, she collaborates with a diverse team of providers to focus on quality of life and comfort for children with serious illnesses.
