Our social workers play a vital, valuable and unique role in assessing and implementing interventions that assist patients and their families to cope during the diagnostic and treatment period and, often, beyond the treatment period.

Wellness & Survivorship Program
The Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Wellness and Survivorship Program at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College consists of a multidisciplinary team focused on recognizing and managing potential late effects that can occur as a consequence after treatment for childhood cancers and/or following stem cell transplant on the brain, eyes, ears, lungs, heart, liver, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, and bladder, as well as the skeletal, reproductive and endocrine systems. The program is focused on educating survivors regarding their long term health risks and addressing these needs by providing survivors with comprehensive medical and psychosocial care.
