Alexandra Gubin, MSW, serves as a Clinical Social Worker and the Young Adult Patient Navigator at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Alexandra works in conjunction with the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF) and a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals at the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center within the pediatric oncology division and the Kimmel Center to improve the cancer experience for young adults and to address the unique needs and of the young adults patients and their families. She provides resources and counseling designed to empower young adult patients and their families to take an active role in their cancer experience and supports them as they face the challenges of a cancer diagnosis.
With the launch of the Patient Navigation Program at Kimmel, the Ulman Cancer Fund now runs four such programs at major cancer centers in the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan area. UCF has offered free patient navigation services out of its offices since the organization was established in 1997.
The program will be largely financed by fundraising efforts of 4K for Cancer, a non-profit organization that was recently acquired by UCF. 4K for Cancer coordinates teams of college students to cycle across the country while raising money and awareness for the fight against cancer. Founded in 2001 at Johns Hopkins University, 4K for Cancer became a part of UCF to enhance its ability to activate more college students in the young adult cancer fight.
