“I think it is a privilege to be with patients at such a vulnerable time and I hope I bring a little bit of ease to the experience.”

Nora Larson is an oncology social worker with a special interest in palliative care and young adults affected by cancer. Her approach to care is informed by her own personal experience with a loved one who underwent cancer treatment. Her core values include empathy, equity, curiosity, and transparency. She strives to provide an open environment where patients can ask the hard questions, share their struggles and explore what they are hoping for. Nora wants patients to understand the care team is committed to treating them as a whole person with a range of needs and emotions. Her role is to partner with patients as they navigate their experience; to deeply listen, to advocate, to be a resource, and to provide counseling to patients and their families/caregivers.

When not at work, Nora loves spending time with her active family and being in nature. She also appreciates moments to herself for creative, restful, reflective endeavors.
