---tllhe Appalachia Community Cancer Network (ACCN) proposes to develop and pilot a cancer patient navigation (PN) program for its community cancer coalitions, partners, and rural hospitals. The goal of the ACCN PN program is to reduce the burden of cancer in Appalachia by providing support to patients with an abnormal finding on a breast, cervical, and colorectal screening and to ensure that patients receive timely diagnostic, treatment, and survivorship care.
