About Me

As a board certified clinical neuropsychologist, I am passionate about maximizing patient outcomes. I’m broadly trained to treat a wide range of clinical conditions and I’m especially interested in the neuropsychological consequences of cancer.

A typical neuropsychological evaluation aims to identify cognitive and psychosocial barriers that are negatively impacting a patient’s quality of life. In each evaluation, I consider the patient’s unique needs and background. The patient then receives one-on-one feedback about their results, as well as information about resources and services that will maximize their functioning.

My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the many opportunities to collaborate with others in clinical care, research and education. I’m particularly interested in transdisciplinary endeavors that lead to meaningful individual outcomes, including increasing patient access to highly sought-after services.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/29/2023, Dr. Dawson has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
