Elizabeth F. Halton

Nurse Practitioner

I graduated from Columbia University in 1986 and began my career at Memorial Sloan Kettering working with thoracic oncology patients. It was here that I realized the uniqueness of the oncology patient population. I received the Memorial Sloan Kettering Excellence in Nursing Practice Award in 1990 as well as the Lane Adams Award for Nursing, and advanced to the role of clinical nurse specialist.

I transferred to the Adult Day Hospital in 1991, where I was responsible for the administration of chemotherapy and blood products, as well as for providing for the educational and emotional needs of patients with a wide variety of cancers and their families.

In 2000, upon receiving my nurse practitioner degree, I began working on the Leukemia and Lymphoma Services. My experience as a nurse practitioner has afforded me the opportunity to work closely with patients and their families in the management of hematologic malignancies, including leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. I was privileged and humbled to receive the Wholeness of Life Award in 2010. The experience of interacting with patients through this challenging time continues to inspire me daily.
