Hi! I'm Jacqueline de la Cruz (you can also call me Jackie) and I just joined the Oncofertility Consortium in June as a Clinical Research Coordinator. I recently completed my MPH in Maternal and Child Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, after having received my BA in Human Biology at Stanford University. Chicago is my home, so it was great to come back to study and work here!
My work with the Consortium will mainly consist of supporting the research initiatives of the National Physicians' Cooperative (NPC), a group of 60 nationwide institutions that work together to investigate and provide fertility preservation options for cancer patients. I'm excited about working so closely with these innovative groups and will definitely keep everyone updated with the NPC's progress!
