Charting the Path Forward for Low Income Women of Color

Passion and compassion for low-income women of color is not an issue of lacking empathy, scientific or medical care. It is a social issue. Health-care providers do their best to support, encourage, treat, and motivate those living with cancer; but many do not have the resources, training, or preparation to work as effectively as possible with patients from marginalized groups in a relatable and non-judgmental way. Cancer Navigation: Charting the Path Forward for Low Income Women of Color is a practical quick-reference resource for U.S. health-care providers working with marginalized women throughout the cancer continuum. From community preventative outreach to survivorship, this accessible guidebook is a vital resource for physicians, social workers, case managers, and other cancer care providers who seek to provide more equitable care for low-income women of color.
