SUPPORT | Patient Navigation
Planning for cancer treatment can be an overwhelming and complex process. Through the help of our Patient Navigation program, patients and their families are able to manage the complexities of their treatment as well as connect with available resources to help overcome any barriers during their cancer treatment. At Georgetown Cancer Center, we believe patients can focus their energy on their recovery, if we focus our energy on them.
