August’s Facebook Live discussion focused on the event that has changed so much this year in the way oncology navigators work with patients, providers, and the community. The coronavirus pandemic shuttered practices, filled hospital beds, altered the way care is delivered, and is creating a backlog of patients who did not receive screenings or other tests during the first weeks of the crisis.

During this session, the presenters also addressed health equity and access, loss of health insurance, the impact on delay in early detection and screenings, care delivery, and the importance of oncology navigators.
