Dr. Pozadzides has authored and co-authored numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals on cancer-related topics, and has taken part in several MD Anderson research projects. She frequently lectures at local, regional and national education events and serves on various committees at MD Anderson and local hospitals. While Dr. Pozadzides considers herself a generalist, she has published research on lymphoma and gastrointestinal cancers, and she has spent considerable time treating women's cancers, lung, head and neck cancers. She is a collaborator in many clinical trials that are available in The Woodlands where she offers her patients personalized care. Dr. Pozadzides won the 2012 Janice David Singletary Fellowship for Lymphoma Award at MD Anderson and a 2011 Abstract Achievement Award from the American Society of Hematology for her scholarly work. The doctor participates in multidisciplinary conferences and gives input twice weekly in patient-focused conferences involving local physicians in The Woodlands. She is active in The Woodlands and Houston cancer prevention and volunteer community. She has participated in many community outreach programs with breast cancer, leukemia and lymphoma, and also mentors high school students. Community service is an important part of her life and she believes in giving back and helping those who are in need. Dr. Pozadzides prides herself on getting to know her patients and their family on a personal level. Further, she works hard to educate, inspire and bring together those touched by cancer. Dr. Pozadzides understands that cancer doesn't just affect the body, but also our families, work life, psychology, personal finances and so much more. Together with her husband and three daughters, Dr. Pozadzides lives in The Woodlands. She is Vietnamese and her husband is Greek. They love to travel and have been to a few continents. She loves to get to know people from different backgrounds and teaches her children to do the same.
