Ulman Foundation Announces Partnership with
Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators
February 21, 2019 The Ulman Foundation is delighted to announce they are partnering with the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+).
Ulman has operated a distinctive adolescent and young adult (AYA) navigation program for the past 17 years. Working in conjunction with the medical care teams at institutions and within the community, Ulman Navigators provide a holistic approach to patient care, addressing various needs of young adults who face a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and life with cancer.
AYA Navigation Director at Ulman, Christina Miller, LCPC, OPN-CG shared, “This partnership will raise awareness of the unique psychosocial and emotional barriers to care that Adolescent and Young Adult patients experience. Together, our alliance will elevate the practice of all of the AONN+ 8,200-person membership, which, in return, will improve the quality of care our AYAs receive, nationally.”
