Take this course focused on how to assist, empower and navigate patients through the genetic counseling and testing process.
“It's so important to quantify the value of navigation, “this is just amazing… It takes a village to make the changes needed in all our communities.”
“Knowing the history of medicine and how we were treated as patients…. I pray that everyone who had the opportunity to see the training will think of ways to improve the health system for people of color."
"...I am honored that this program (was) created… so that I as a black woman, can assist other fellow black women in receiving adequate cancer care.”
"Thank you for sharing the knowledge this is very motivating and encouraging to all of us. You make us feel value as a patient navigator. Thank you again."
