Jacqueline LaGrassa

I am a clinical social worker working with lung cancer patients being treated by our Thoracic Medicine and Thoracic Surgery teams, as well as patients being treated by our Melanoma and Immunotherapeutics Services. I am the co-coordinator of the R.E.A.C.H. for Caregivers program and co-facilitate one of the virtual caregiver support groups. I have a background in crisis intervention and trauma. My clinical interests involve the impact of cancer on family dynamics and how to best enhance communication and understanding between patients and their loved ones. I graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in 2012 and joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2014.
