Published: August 10, 2021

We discuss the long-term neurocognitive impacts of cancer treatment in children survivors, the dizzying post-treatment landscape that families learn to navigate, and the critical roles that educators and healthcare professionals hold in survivors’ lives (well after treatment is done) with Lisa Jacobson, PhD, NCSP, ABPP. She is Director of Research in the Department of Neuropsychology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and co-director of the institute’s Center for Innovation and Leadership in Special Education (CILSE).
