Patient Navigation Programs

Breast cancer mortality rates are higher in Ohio than almost anywhere else in the country. With our Patient Navigation Program, we are working to save lives throughout our service area by helping women and men access quality breast health care.

We are:

  1. Educating women about breast cancer risk and screenings
  2. Linking them to breast health care
  3. Resolving barriers preventing them from accessing care
  4. Helping them navigate the health care system

We need your help to continue this important program and fulfill our Bold Goal to decrease the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. Please join us in the fight against breast cancer by making a donation today. Donate!

 

Whether you have insurance and need help understanding your benefits or connecting to a local provider, or you are uninsured and need help paying for medical care from screening through diagnostics, our navigators can assist you. Our 8 navigator networks involve many clinics, screening providers, diagnostic providers and healthcare systems. Though the navigators are your points of contact at the organizations below, financial assistance is available at most central and southeast Ohio medical providers through one of these programs.
