With Carole O’Toole, MS
Integrative Cancer Care Navigation empowers people living with cancer to become more engaged in their healing and wellbeing through education, information and assistance with selecting and accessing supportive resources. Navigators provide compassionate, caring support from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.
No matter where you find yourself on the cancer journey, navigation can be a powerful tool in your healing.
Carole O’Toole, MS, Director of Integrative Navigation Team, will introduce you to integrative navigation, created at Smith Center, and discuss how to benefit from navigation. Please join her for an informal discussion. RSVP’s encouraged.
Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
