“Hematology” and “Cardeza” are virtually synonymous in Jefferson Medical College and Thomas Jefferson University. In 1939 Mr. and Mrs. Thomas D. Cardeza founded The Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research as a memorial to Mr. Cardeza’s mother, Charlotte Drake Cardeza. Since that time the Foundation has supported research, education and clinical Hematology services in the Department of Medicine at the Jefferson Medical College of the Thomas Jefferson University. Such support has fulfilled the gracious intentions of the Cardezas and enabled creation of one of the premier academic Hematology programs in the world.
