Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles


 
Lawrence H. Kushi, ScD, is Director of Scientific Policy at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. Prior to joining the Division of Research, Dr. Kushi was at Columbia University, where he held the Ella McCollum Vahlteich Chair in Human Nutrition in the Department of Health and Behavior Studies, Teachers College; and he was a member of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Dr. Kushi is internationally recognized for his expertise in nutritional epidemiology, and his research interests focus on the role of diet and nutrition in the etiology of coronary artery disease and breast and other cancers. He serves on a grant review committee for the American Cancer Society and has served on various American Cancer Society committees to develop guidelines for the dietary prevention and management of cancer. Dr. Kushi has also served on review committees for the Epidemiology and Disease Control Study Section of the National Institutes of Health, and the Integration Panel of the Breast Cancer Research Program of the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. He was formerly the chair of the Food and Nutrition Section of the American Public Health Association; on the executive committee of the American Society of Preventive Oncology; and has worked at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Dr. Kushi graduated from Amherst College and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Clinical Pregnancy Outcomes in Adolescent and Young Adult Female Cancer Survivors

Post-diagnosis fertility is a critical issue for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors (diagnosed at age 15 to 39 years), with little information on the impact of cancer diagnosis and treatment on pregnancy outcomes. This study focuses on five leading cancer types among female adolescent and young adult cancer survivors: breast, melanoma, thyroid, and Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas. We will analyze North Carolina state-wide cancer registry data linked to claims and offspring birth records from 2003 to 2012, as well as data from Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) and Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC) for 2000 to 2016. Study aims include assessment of adverse pregnancy outcome risk among 7,200 female adult and young adult cancer survivors at KPNC and KPSC, with 1,300 births, matched five-to-one to 36,000 women without a prior cancer diagnosis on age and enrollment year. Adverse pregnancy outcome risk will also be assessed among 8,000 female adult and young adult cancer survivors in North Carolina, matched five-to-one on maternal age, state, and delivery year. Additionally, the impact of fertility preservation counseling and use on risk of adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes will be evaluated.

Infrastructure for Pathways, a Prospective Study of Breast Cancer Survivorship

This grant provides core infrastructure support for the Pathways Study (Kushi, PI), a prospective cohort study of breast cancer survivorship and prognosis. Since 2006, the study enrolled 4,505 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in KPNC. Activities (Ambrosone, Christine, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Co-PI) include ongoing follow-up of participants, active and passive ascertainment of outcomes, collection of tumor specimens, linkage to KPNC electronic records, enhancement of area-level data from contextual databases through virtual neighborhood audits, provision of genotypic data from genome-wide assays, and establishment of a community and participant advisory board. These activities enhance the Pathways Study to make it an unparalleled, outstanding resource for studies of breast cancer prognosis.
