The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement offers the following services and outreach programming throughout the Western New York (WNY) region:
National Witness Project (NWP)
The National Witness Project educates and engages participants on early cancer detection through stories told by breast and cervical cancer survivors in churches and community settings. We offer patient navigation and screening assistance. Patient navigators are trained, culturally competent health care workers who guide patients, family members and physicians through the health care system to ensure that their needs are being met.
