Staff Spotlight – Bill Terry, MD, MPH

Dr. Terry is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology.

I moved from New York City in October, 2015 to work in the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology. In Pediatrics, I focus on pediatric solid tumors and cancer predisposition. I also co-manage the Cancer Survivorship Program. In addition, I am the Director of the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Program, which is an awesome collaboration between the Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our program helps to coordinate care for cancer patients ages 13-35.

My husband, Jody, is a dance teacher at Nolte Academy. We have a 7 year old son, Micah, who will be in 2nd grade at Wickham.

Some people say I have an addiction to gardening, but I like to consider it a healthy obsession. If I’m not in the garden, we like to take family bike rides and have lots of parties at our house for friends.

My dream job? A job where I can help improve outcomes for kids and young adults with cancer. My current position allows me to do all the things I want to do in order to build programs that can make a difference.

One of the favorite places I’ve lived is in Sevilla, Spain. It is a fascinating city that mixes Europe and the Middle East. Travel to the rest of Europe and Northern Africa is relatively easy and the people, food and culture are amazing.

Favorite meal or restaurant? Any place outside, by the water, eating seafood.

Favorite book or movie? My most recent favorite book is “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman.
