Mary Anne Toledo-Tamula, M.A.
I have been working as a Psychometrist for the Neurobehavioral Group for more than 10 years. This has given me extensive research and clinical experience working with chronically ill individuals ranging in age from infancy to adulthood. I see my role as one that supports the research efforts of the principal investigators. My responsibilities include administering cognitive assessments to patients enrolled on medical protocols with the National Cancer Institute and other NIH institutes, providing verbal feedback and written reports of evaluation results to participants, interacting frequently with members of the NIH medical staff for coordination of care, assisting families with the implementation of educational recommendations and local mental health services, and providing therapeutic services upon request.
