For those coping with cancer, we provide you with support through our counseling program and offer services that help you navigate the health care system.
Psychologists & Social Workers
Psychologists and licensed clinical social workers allow you to talk confidentially about your fears and experience with cancer, and can connect you with community resources to help you deal with your situation. Ask a doctor or nurse for a referral to one of UVA Cancer Center's psychologists or social workers.
A patient navigator meets with newly diagnosed patients to discuss your needs and provide you with access to financial information, support groups, educational programs, nutrition, counseling and other resources.
