There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Join Susan G. Komen Greater New York City as we launch a new series
of conversations about the Efficacy and Cost-Effectiveness of Patient Navigation.

Championing the value of patient navigators throughout the cancer continuum has always been part of our DNA. This year's conference will focus on making the business case: finally setting the stage for institutionalizing this vital service.

Find out what it will take and who will need to be part of the discussion to become more patient-centric, deliver high-quality breast cancer education and medical services, and create a permanent safety-net infrastructure through community collaboration. We believe that an increased investment in Patient Navigation can decrease the cost burden to providers while normalizing access to care and cultivating a higher level of trust and confidence in the system.
