Through Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau, cancer centers, hospitals, cancer organizations, and other groups that are coordinating educational events can be connected with expert speakers on various cancer survivorship issues.
Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau also includes cancer survivors and caregivers who have experience sharing their cancer journey with a variety of audiences. If you are planning an event, it is a good idea to request speakers as early as possible. Some of our speakers are often booked months in advance.
Triage Cancer can also assist in the comprehensive coordination of educational events, in addition to providing speakers on specific topics.
Below you can learn more about each speaker, sort speakers by particular areas of expertise, and read about potential topics that you may want to include in your next event!
Jill Meyer-Lippert, RDH began her dental career in 1992 as a Dental Assistant and Receptionist. At the same time, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Helplessly watching her mother suffer horribly with oral side effects from chemotherapy, she developed a strong interest in the oral concerns of cancer survivors.
Jill earned her degree and became licensed as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1994 and continued to pursue knowledge to help this very underserved area of cancer care. After losing her father to Hodgkin’s Disease in 2005, she developed an enhanced level of motivation to act and do more, creating a volunteer program providing oral care kits with product samples and patient education at a local oncology department from 2006 to 2012.
She earned a certificate in Oncology Management from the University of Southern Indiana and is a member of the Dental Hygiene Advisory Board for the Oral Cancer Foundation. Jill is the Founder and CEO of Side Effect Support LLC, which is dedicated to helping cancer survivors manage short-term oral side effects and long-term damage to oral health associated with chemotherapy, radiation to the head and neck, and some targeted therapies.
Jill is a 2014 recipient of the Sunstar Americas/RDH Award of Distinction, a member of the American Academy of Dental Hygiene, the American Dental Hygiene Association and an inaugural member of the American Academy of Dental Oncology.
