Welcome to the APOS Sexual & Reproductive Health SIG!
Beth Gardini Dixon, PsyD is a Staff Clinical Psychologist at Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute (TCI) and Clinical Assistant Professor at Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. She has practiced for 25 years, with the last 8 years devoted exclusively to providing psycho-oncology care to adults and their families, from time of diagnosis through long-term survivorship. Recognizing that sexuality and reproductive concerns of people with cancer are under-addressed in the medical setting, she has focused her continuing education and additional graduate coursework in the areas of sexual health counseling in cancer, oncofertility, and provider communication. At TCI, she has worked to assemble an interdisciplinary team of colleagues to collaboratively build a program that integrates sexual and reproductive health services into overall care of patients. She is committed to bringing together professionals who share an interest in promoting sexual and reproductive health in cancer research and clinical care. Since 2011, she has held a variety of active roles in APOS. As the Sexual and Reproductive SIG Chair, she looks forward to welcoming you!
