Bio:  Lauren Lux, LCSW, is the Director of UNC Lineberger’s Adolescents and Young Adult (AYA) Support Program, which offers a range of personalized care and support for AYAs undergoing cancer treatment at the N.C. Cancer Hospital and UNC Children’s Hospital. Lux’s responsibilities are many and vary widely, from clinical work that aims to help AYAs maintain their sense of independence and identity throughout treatment, to providing access to complementary and support services, to coordinating group events that allow AYAs to connect with each other.  She and Medical Director, Andrew Smitherman, are also responsible for the growth and development of the AYA program – which includes setting and executing the research agenda, directing training efforts on a local and national level, and advocating for and developing AYA friendly hospital policies, processes, and programming.
