Jacqueline LaGrassa

I am a clinical social worker supporting patients and their families receiving care in the Gastrointestinal Medicine and Geriatric Services. I am the co-coordinator of the R.E.A.C.H. for Caregivers program and co-lead one of the virtual caregiver support groups. I have a background in crisis intervention and trauma and a special interest in the impact of cancer on family dynamics and relationships. I graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in 2012 and joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2014. I have received advanced training in both Advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (2018) and Supportive and End-of-Life Care (2017) from NYU’s Silver School of Social Work.
