In pursuit of a career in the medical field, Cassandra Dobson earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in nursing from Lehman College, and her Ph.D. in nursing from Columbia University. Additionally, she also received a postdoctoral degree from Albert Einstein Yeshiva University. She has been a registered nurse for more than 25 years, and is specialized in working with patients with sickle cell disease (SCD).
Dr. Dobson currently utilizes her previous experiences in her role as an associate professor at Lehman College, where she teaches nursing courses, and as the assistant director of nursing at the Montefiore Medical Center. Prior to these positions, she was a clinical instructor for North Central Hospital, as well as a quality management analyst for Montefiore. Dr. Dobson is a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patient Network, and the Queens Sickle Cell Patient Advocacy. Career-wise, she hopes to work to change the course of the management of SCD. She would also like to write a book.
Personally, Dr. Dobson’s greatest accomplishment is her family. She was told she would never have children, so her family is a great source of pride. Her dedication to helping others has also won her an award in 2014 from Congressman Randall for taking care of the underserved. She would like to be remembered as a woman who was always giving unconditionally to others, and plans to continue to dedicate her life to helping the less fortunate.
