Helping people fight cancer...one screening at a time.
As part of our Disparities Solutions Center, we conduct a nationally-recognized program to promote cancer screening and education. Central to the program are our professional Health Navigators.
We focus on uninsured and underinsured patients of local federally-qualified Community Health Centers and other primary care clinics. Our Health Navigators individually assist eligible patients in obtaining no-cost breast, cervical and colorectal screening services and follow-up care. They also encourage patients to discuss other screenings with their doctors, such as for prostate, lung and skin cancers.
Because insured patients often also do not receive recommended cancer screenings, Cancer Coalition staff educate and encourage these local men and women as well.
