Dr. Carol A. Rosenberg was recently highlighted in a Medill Report for her work with cancer survivorship. Dr. Rosenberg’s life – from clinical experience to research experience to personal experience as the mother of a childhood cancer survivor- all seem to have perfectly prepared her to create and direct the ground-breaking Living in the Future (LIFE) Cancer Survivorship program. The innovative program has two main components: a one-time, one-on-one meeting with an oncology nurse to develop customized health plans, and a series of educational workshops and seminars to educate survivors, family members and health care providers on the obstacles survivors face, including potential infertility. The program is based at suburban Highland Park Hospital but serves all the hospitals in the NorthShore University HealthSystem.
