- Provide breast health and breast cancer education
- Connect patients and family members to local, state and regional agencies
- Coordinate referrals to support services and specialists
- Serve as a main point of contact for patients, family members and physicians
- Ensuring seamless and timeliness of care
- Community outreach and education
