Performing a thorough, 2 ½ hour evaluation, program specialists review the childhood cancer survivor's medical charts, treatments/dosages, areas in the body that the treatments targeted, imaging history and medications. They give the survivor a physical examination, process lab results, and assess for any learning problems, vocational limitations or socialization difficulties. To make the transition to adult healthcare a little easier, they also help teen survivors as needed to find the appropriate primary care physician and/or specialists for their condition.
The program's evaluation includes various assessments, from checking hearing, eyesight, hormone levels and kidney function, to discussing how to improve diet, exercise and sleep habits for optimum health. Participants are also provided information on how they can maximize their education, such as confirming whether they qualify by law to have extended time to take academic tests, and identifying scholarships available specifically for cancer survivors.

We routinely provide survivors with cancer treatment summaries and personal health records to share with their local doctors. We work with survivors to help them find local resources to stay healthy after cancer. When needed, we will write to insurance companies to explain why certain tests may be needed, based on the former patient’s cancer history.
Who is eligible: The clinic limits services to patients who received treatment at St. Jude. Patients treated at other centers who move to the Memphis area are also eligible for services. St. Jude patients are eligible for transfer into the ACT Clinic when they are 5 years from diagnosis and their disease has been in remission for at least 2 years after completion of therapy. Patients are seen annually by the ACT Clinic staff until they are 10 years from diagnosis and at least 18 years of age. Most adult survivors then graduate as alumnus of the clinic. They are monitored annually through a mail questionnaire sent by the St. Jude Cancer Registry. St. Jude alumni survivors are now eligible to return for health evaluations as part of the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort study.
