Joanna Zizzo

Nurse Practitioner

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2012 as a nurse practitioner with the Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service. I have been working in the field of hematologic malignancies and transplant since 2006, when I started my career as an oncology nurse.

I decided to enter the field of nursing because of my personal experiences within the healthcare system as a type 1 diabetic since early childhood. I now find it extremely rewarding to help others during their periods of illness and recovery.
