Job Title and description: Certified Navigator-Breast Advocate

A Certified Navigator-Breast Advocate (Lay Navigator) is a non-clinical staff member who provides one-on-one guidance and assistance to individuals as they move through the often confusing health care continuum.  In the Joan Katz Breast Center, our Lay Navigator is also a breast cancer survivor who is able to offer emotional support for patients and their families from someone who has “walked the walk.”  She is often called the chief hand holder, anxiety reducer, and purveyor of hugs and hope.
