Peggy Johnson from United Hospital Center joined 5 News for our Health Alert Segment.  She is a new resource for our area for anything that has to do with breast cancer, from prevention to treatment.  Officially she is the Clinical Navigator.

In this segment, we will discuss:
  • What exactly is a Clinical Navigator
  • What role does Peggy play in the community.
  • What are the key benefits to cancer patient navigation

In addition to the new clinical navigator for breast cancer position at UHC, Peggy is now starting a support group as a means to assist those with breast cancer.  We will also discuss what the support group's mission is.
