Academic Bio

Anne C. Kirchhoff, PhD, MPH recently joined the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and as an Investigator at the Huntsman Cancer Institute in the Cancer Control and Population Sciences Research Program. Anne completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Biobehavioral Cancer Prevention and Control at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA from 2010-2011. Her research focuses on how late effects from cancer treatment impact socioeconomic outcomes for survivors. Anne has worked on several projects using data from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study to investigate the employment status of long-term survivors of childhood cancer. Anne’s research interests also include using large, population-based surveys to examine socioeconomic outcomes of cancer survivors. She has authored several publications examining late effects, employment and health insurance coverage after cancer.

Anne completed her doctoral degree in the Department of Health Services at the University of Washington School of Public Health, where she was funded by the National Cancer Institute’s R25 Education and Career Development Program. She also received her MPH in Health Education and Behavioral Science from the School of Public Health at Saint Louis University.
