Helping Guide Patients Through Diagnosis, Treatment and Survivorship

Yolanda Bennett

Yolanda Bennett,
Surgery Navigator

Yolanda Bennett joined our navigator team in July. A breast cancer survivor herself, she supports newly diagnosed breast cancer patients work through the treatment options presented by their surgeon—choosing between lumpectomy or mastectomy, for example—so they can prioritize their goals and decide the course of treatment best suited to their individual needs and wishes. She also helps patients overcome barriers to care, including guiding them to financial resources, helping with transportation or insurance issues. Contact Yolanda at ybennet2@jh.edu.

Kate Pisano

Kate Pisano,
Women’s Wellness and Healthy Aging Program Navigator

Breast cancer survivor and former patient liaison Kate Pisano is the navigator of the new Women’s Wellness and Healthy Aging Program. Specialists from several departments educate, treat, and advocate for women transitioning to menopause and women who are young breast cancer survivors experiencing symptoms of menopause. Kate speaks with patients and doctors to understand needs and facilitate consultations with the appropriate specialists. The goal is healthy aging after breast cancer through intervention to prevent and manage health concerns. Contact Kate at womenswellness@jhmi.edu.
