ThriveNV Patient Navigation Expands with Southern Nevada Presence

12 December, 2022

Did you know that ThriveNV has three navigators? In late 2021 and early 2022, NCC added two new navigators to the team, both bilingual and based in Las Vegas. The addition of the new team members -- Valerie and Jorge -- was exciting because it added to our ability to serve Nevadans.

Both navigators trained through the GW Cancer Institute's Oncology Patient Navigator Training to serve clients across the state. They also participate in NCC's other prevention, early detection and survivorship work.

Since the duo came on board, ThriveNV has seen a 400% increase in Spanish-speaking clients and a 41% increase in calls from people in Southern Nevada. NCC has also been able to attend outreach events in Las Vegas, Mesquite and other communities that were previously impossible to staff.
