For 17 years, Patrick Stoup served as president of (SAI) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, a talent acquisition and placement firm that works with both government and private sector clients. In 2014, he transitioned out of the president role, becoming the company’s CEO. Outside of his work, Patrick Stoup supports organizations that provide care and comfort to children battling difficult diseases, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Earlier this year, St. Jude highlighted research presented during the recent American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual conference that shows an overall decreased in chronic health problems in children who have received cancer treatments. An NIH-funded comprehensive study examining this topic, dubbed the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study, looked at data gathered from more than 23,000 childhood cancer survivors over three decades.
Researchers found that 12.7 percent of children diagnosed and treated in the 1970s reported at least one significant chronic health condition later in life. Among those diagnosed and treated in the 1980s, that rate dropped to 10.1 percent and again decreased to 8.8 percent to those diagnosed and treated during the 1990s.
