Lisa Ward, PA-C

Physician Assistant




I’m a physician assistant in the Division of Endocrinology at The James. After graduating from the Kettering College of Medical Arts in 1998, I went on to earn my master’s in kinesiology from Indiana University. I spent the next 15 years at a family practice before accepting a position at the OSUCCC – James, where I currently work with four thyroid cancer specialists and one adrenal/pituitary specialist.

Endocrine cancers and disorders can cause people to generally feel poor, and I enjoy being able to help patients feel better and correct hormonal abnormalities related to their cancers. The physicians that I work alongside are world-renowned in their field. We are on the forefront of many endocrine cancer treatments, using a multidisciplinary treatment approach that collaborates closely with the surgical oncology and medical oncology teams.

Everyone at The James is focused on the same goal of helping patients beat cancer. I know we are making an impact on patients’ quality of life, and that makes me incredibly proud to be a part of the OSUCCC – James team. Outside of my duties at The James, I volunteer at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank on a regular basis, where I can continue to make a difference in people’s lives.
