A. Blythe Ryerson, MPH, joined CDC as an epidemiologist in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control's (DCPC's) Epidemiology and Applied Research Branch in 2003. The majority of her work focuses on the early detection of breast and ovarian cancer and research related to CDC's National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. Additionally, Mrs. Ryerson has provided epidemiologic expertise to develop and evaluate the Inside Knowledge: Get the Facts about Gynecologic Cancer campaign.
Mrs. Ryerson is a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at Emory University. Her dissertation research is on the late cardiac effects of certain chemotherapy drugs in childhood cancer survivors. Because of this, and her collaboration with DCPC staff and external partners on other cancer survivorship projects, she co-chairs DCPC's Cancer Survivorship Workgroup, which directs research, resources, and programs aimed at identifying and addressing cancer survivors' needs.
