In 2015, a new service called Managing Cancer at Work will be added free of charge to the benefits package for Johns Hopkins University employees.
Developed by a team at Hopkins, this one-of-a-kind program is designed specifically to meet the needs of employees who want to be proactive in preventing cancer, and those who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis or caring for someone with cancer. It also has information designed specifically for supervisors on how best to support employees through a cancer journey.
Managing Cancer at Work combines personalized nurse navigation with a Web-based educational program for employees and managers. Accessing the online information or contacting the nurse navigator is confidential and free of charge. The website can be reached after Jan. 2 by going to http://managingcanceratwork.com and entering the PIN 6229.
To speak with the cancer nurse navigator, Maria Borsellino, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-955-6229.
