Recipient: Levine Cancer Institute, Atrium Health
Program Title: Improving Access to Care in Lung Cancer Screening Patients through Personalized Navigation Support Services
The grant will support Levine Cancer Institute in serving patients who are in the process of confirming a lung cancer diagnosis or those with a positive screen with immediate, short-term assistance to help reduce the burden of having to choose between basic needs and their health.
Many of the patients that Levine Cancer Institute sees face difficult obstacles that make it hard for them to live healthy lifestyles. These barriers include food insecurity, lack of transportation to get potentially life-saving medical appointments, and financial hardships that make it difficult to pay living expenses and utilities. This program will act as a bridge to connecting the patient with community-specific resources that will help address long-term needs. To read the full press release, click here.
