In my academic career, at Yale, I worked as a member of the Breast Oncology Group and edited a book, "Choices in Breast Cancer Treatment" (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2008). At the same time I was the founder and Director of the Connecticut Challenge Cancer Survivorship Program: a multidisciplinary program providing care for cancer survivors and served as the course director for three annual CME programs for health care providers on cancer survivorship. I have had extensive experience in teaching medical students, residents, and fellows about cancer survivorship.
In January, 2009 I joined the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as the Director of the Lance Armstrong Foundation Cancer Survivorship Clinic. While at Dana-Farber I have edited a new text, "Medical and Psychosocial Care of the Cancer Survivor" (Jones and Bartlett, 2009) and then, “Excellent Care for Cancer Survivors (Praeger Press, 2011). I was the founding Director of a Harvard CME Course on Cancer Survivorship in October, 2009 with a second annual conference in 2010. Our survivorship group created a series of award winning videotapes for the Dana-Farber website about “Living Well Beyond Cancer” ( http://www.dana-farber.org/pat/surviving/adult-onset/living-well/). I have also developed a strong interest in international cancer care. I am very pleased to volunteer my time to ASCO helping to organize an Oncology Fellowship Training Program in Ethiopia.
At the University of Maryland, Greenebaum Cancer Center I serve as the Director of Outpatient Oncology and I am a member of the Thoracic Oncology Group. My interest is in developing new and improved treatment for patients with mesothelioma and lung cancer.
