Dr. Mary Reid, MSPH, PhD

Roswell Park
Comprehensive Cancer Center

Dr. Reid is a cancer epidemiologist, Distinguished Professor of Oncology, Chief of Cancer Screening and Survivorship, and Director of Collaborative Research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (RPCCC). She has over 20 years of experience directing cancer screening and surveillance studies on upper aero-digestive cancers, particularly those evaluating the natural history of epithelial premalignant lesions. In 2014, under Dr. Reid’s leadership, RPCCC developed a mixed model comprehensive cancer screening and survivorship clinical and research program, with a central clinic and small satellites. The comprehensive cancer screening program includes lung, breast, cervical, colorectal, and pancreatic cancers and has a general screening clinical service. The survivorship program provides comprehensive patient centered survivorship care, symptom management, referrals to an array of support services and the generation of a detailed care plan for all patients and community providers. Over 4600 patients have been seen in the clinical program since its inception from multiple disease sites. The entire multidisciplinary team of providers places great emphasis on wellness, cancer screening and risk reduction while supporting research that will enhance the evidence base of comprehensive screening and survivorship care.
