Marin joins patient navigator team
Ana Marin has joined BIDMC as the American Cancer Society/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) patient navigator, to help patients deal with the day-to-day challenges of living with cancer.
A grant from AstraZeneca to the American Cancer Society enabled BIDMC to expand its existing free and confidential Patient Navigator Program to include Marin, a native Spanish speaker.
Focused on eliminating barriers to cancer care for the medically underserved, patient navigators provide personal assistance to patients and their caregivers to help them negotiate the health care system throughout the disease continuum - from the time of diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship.
