Dr. Haddad was born in Lebanon and completed high school education at the French Lycee. She obtained her MD degree from the American University of Beirut in 1996 and subsequently moved to the United States. After an internship year in Pediatrics at SUNY Syracuse, she joined the IU-Riley Hospital for Children Pediatrics residency program.  She completed her fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology at Riley Hospital in 2003, and has been on staff at Riley since. Although she treats children with a broad spectrum of endocrinologic disorders, she has special interest in endocrine disease related to cancer treatment, and oversees a clinic devoted to these patients. She also has interest and expertise in the treatment of children with thyroid disease, precocious puberty, and Turner syndrome.
