Free event for prostate cancer survivors to be held May 9

May 03, 2017

Being diagnosed with prostate cancer can be a confusing time. That’s why the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute offers a nurse navigator program – to help guide cancer patients and their families through what can be an unfamiliar healthcare system.

To educate prostate cancer patients and survivors on the role of nurse navigators, the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute is offering a free event May 9 – “Understanding Prostate Cancer: the Role of the Nurse Navigator.” This lecture will include information on the role of the nurse navigator, when to seek navigator services and how navigators can help with care coordination. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and have a peer-to-peer discussion following the lecture by registered nurse Susanne Brown.

The free event is being held in the Taylor Conference Room at the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute in Hartford from 6:30-8 p.m. Parking is available in the lot outside the Cancer Center on Retreat Avenue.
