Kevin C. Oeffinger, MD -- Director, Adult Long-Term Follow-Up Program

I am a primary care physician and Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering's Adult Long-Term Follow-Up Program. This program provides follow-up care for adults of all ages who had cancer during their childhood, adolescent, or young adult years.

In addition to providing health care for cancer survivors, I am a National Cancer Institute-supported independent investigator leading studies to better understand long-term health problems related to cancer and its treatment. We have three primary areas of focus: (1) identifying the risk of cardiovascular disease following cancer therapy, and learning how to modify it; (2) promoting cancer screening, such as screening for breast cancer in survivors who were treated with radiation to the chest (a common component of Hodgkin's disease therapy); and (3) optimizing follow-up care for cancer survivors, including increasing awareness of such care among their primary care physicians.
