Community Navigator, Regional Cancer Center at Indian Path Medical Center
Loma Linda University
As a community navigator, Claudette guides patients through their treatment process by connecting them with community resources, providing emotional support and doing anything else she can to make their experience easier. Having had several family members battle cancer, she can draw on her experience as a caregiver to understand the concerns and expectations of patients and families. “I am thrilled to be part of a team that focuses on the holistic needs of people diagnosed with cancer,” she says.
“People don’t ask for medical problems
in their life. But when they occur, I want to be part
of the process that makes it all a little easier.”
