Quality-of-life issues are important for the many young cancer survivors who will spend decades in post-treatment survivorship. Of the many considerations for survivors, most of the time the Oncofertility Consortium focuses on the reproductive future of young people. However, related issues of sexuality after cancer can have equally significant impacts on later quality of life. Stacy Lindau, MD, MAPP will be sharing her insights on sexual health for survivors at the next Oncofertility Virtual Grand Rounds, tomorrow, April 11th, at 10 AM central time.

Dr. Lindau is an Associate Professor at the Pritzker School of Medicine in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medicine-Geriatrics, and University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center. She is also the director of the University of Chicago’s Program in Integrative Sexual Medicine (PRISM), which uses a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional approach to solving the sexual health problems of cancer patients. At tomorrow’s rounds, Dr. Lindau will present a "Call to Action to Preserve Sexual Function in Women and Girls with Cancer."
