Jennifer S. Ford, PhD

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping children, adolescents, and young adult cancer patients and survivors. I also provide interventions for families of pediatric patients and survivors. I assist survivors and their families with the unique issues associated with cancer survivorship and work closely with the Department of Pediatrics’ long-term follow-up programs for children and young adults. Furthermore, I am the psychological liaison to Pediatrics.

I am also affiliated with the health behavior change and cancer risk reduction laboratory. The lab examines psychological and behavioral factors in cancer prevention and early detection. My research interests include examining the psychosocial aspects of cancer survivorship, with a primary focus on childhood, adolescent, and young adult survivors of childhood cancers; and examining psychological aspects of health promotion and disease prevention among youth.

I am a member of various scientific and medical societies including the American Psychological Association and Society of Adolescent Medicine. Additionally, I am a member of the prevention, control and population research committee at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
