During her time in academia, she researched gastrointestinal and brain tumors, publishing her own research, review articles and book chapters. She was the primary investigator on clinical trials treating gastrointestinal cancers and melanoma.
Dr. Hazard believes in educating patients about the effectiveness and side effects of treatment so they can make informed decisions based on their personal goals and wishes. She shared, “I believe it is equally important to listen to my patients as it is to talk to them.”
