We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Praveen Raju

Thursday, April 6, 2017

As a child, Dr. Praveen Raju and his family raised coconuts in a small village in India. He soon learned that his calling was in the United States, helping children with brain tumors. Dr. Raju knows the weight of this responsibility and the importance of giving hope to patients and their parents.

“Parents give me the responsibility to take care of their children,” said Dr. Raju, an assistant professor of pediatrics and of pediatrics in neurology. “People look for hope or answers. The pediatric service at Weill Cornell Medicine has the infrastructure to address those difficult and challenging problems, and I treasure that.”
