Free Patient Navigation Training Available-sponsored by UDOH and Susan G Koman Foundation

Utah has one of the lowest rates of mammography screening in the nation.   Patient navigators and community health workers are uniquely situated to build bridges between the health care system and the communities they serve. As these roles evolve nationwide, there is a continued need for training and skills development.
With funding from the Susan G Komen Foundation, the Utah Cancer Control Program is hosting a training for lay health workers to will provide them with the tools, resource and skills to educate women about mammography screening and wish to invite you and members from your community to attend.
The training is scheduled for September 6, 2012 from 7:30-4:30
Come join us as we work together toward building bridges and expanding care in the communities we serve.
The cost is FREE and breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. A $20.00 gift certificate and a certificate of completion will be provided.
Contact Maritza Arce-Larreta C-ANP, MSN, RN, Clinical Coordinator, Utah Dept of Health (UDOH) Cancer Control Program at 801-538-6990 for more information.
