Eileen C. Duffey-Lind  

Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Boston Children’s Hospital

Eileen Duffey-Lind has served as chair of the HPV/Cervical Workgroup, initially formed as part of the Massachusetts Comprehensive Cancer Coalition. More recently, she has contributed to the formation of the HPV/Oral Health Task Force, an outgrowth of the original workgroup. She has secured grant funding and published the results of research on interventions, such as an educational survey (tablet) for pediatric practice waiting rooms and an HPV toolkit for dental providers. A founder of Team Maureen, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting and preventing cervical cancers, Duffey-Lind has also freely shared Team Maureen’s materials with individual providers, practices and other coalitions to enable others to use the tools to support improvements in HPV vaccination rates.

Duffey-Lind has engaged physicians and researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Medical Center and experts from other local institutions to educate health care professionals on HPV vaccination through presentations at conferences, webinars and in various practices.

Duffey-Lind was also presented with Dana-Farber’s 2020 Community Service Award at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. celebration on January 16, 2020. The Community Service Award recognizes and rewards extraordinary dedication to and excellence in community service and outreach.

Labaree Volunteer Values Award.
