Anne C. Kirchhoff, PhD, MPH is a tenured Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine and a Huntsman Cancer Institute Investigator in the Cancer Control and Population Sciences Research Program. As a health services researcher, her program primarily concerns evaluating patient outcomes related to healthcare access and cancer late effects, and developing interventions for childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer survivors, with a focus on addressing the social and financial consequences of cancer. Dr. Kirchhoff leads a range of studies from interventions at Huntsman Cancer Institute and Primary Children’s Hospital to statewide analyses of survivor outcomes using the Utah Population Database. Her research interests also include using large, population-based surveys to examine socioeconomic outcomes of cancer survivors. Dr. Kirchhoff has a strong history of funding as a Principal Investigator from both institutional grant support and external funding via the NIH and foundations, including an NCI R01 to develop and test insurance educational materials for adolescents and young adults with cancer. Since 2007, she has collaborated with and led several studies with the national Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS). Most recently, she is a Co-Investigator of an American Cancer Society grant to test an insurance navigation program with survivors recruited from this cohort.

Dr. Kirchhoff 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.
