Our Team

Progress of our AYA@USC Program has been achieved through the guidance and efforts of members from our Executive Committee, Steering Committee and Clinical Care Model, Research, and Education and Outreach Working Groups.

This committee structure includes representation from both inside and outside of USC and its rich diversity of health related disciplines that includes both adult and pediatric medical and surgical oncology, social work, preventive medicine and epidemiology, hospital and cancer center administrative support, student health, physical therapy, fertility services, and more.

The role of each individual is to provide insight and guidance from their specialty, so that the AYA@USC is truly an interdisciplinary and comprehensive Program.
