Stephanie Calabrese is a nurse practitioner who cares for patients with cancer. She supports, educates and advocates for patients as they go through treatment, including when they have surgery. She has particular expertise with breast cancer, noncancerous breast health issues and lymphedema (tissue swelling that can occur if cancer or cancer treatment damages the lymphatic system), and she works closely with several UCSF cancer clinics to provide her patients with comprehensive care.
Calabrese earned a bachelor's degree in biology from St. Peter's University, followed by a master's degree in global health and development from University College London. She then earned a bachelor's degree in nursing from Columbia University and a doctor of nursing practice degree from the University of San Francisco. Prior to joining UCSF, she worked as a preoperative nurse for Sutter Health; a school nurse for University of California College of the Law, San Francisco; a research nurse at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland; and a research coordinator at Hackensack University Medical Center.
Outside of work, Calabrese enjoys traveling, hiking, and exploring new coffee shops in the Bay Area.
