Richard Riegelman MD, MPH, PhD, writes about the emerging career field known as "Health Navigator."
On July 4, the Washington Post featured a front page article, “Navigators’ for cancer patients: A nice perk or something more?” Perhaps the Post recognized that health navigators can provide “independence day” for patients with serious disease. The article and the comments provided numerous testimonials recognizing the “godsend” that health navigators can be for cancer patients. They also indicated that health navigators are being shown to be cost-effective at least for poorer patients.

Great news - the recently published Introduction to Homeland Security: Policy, Organization, and Administration by Willard M. Oliver, Nancy E. Marion, and Joshua B. Hill was warmly reviewed by Professor Ostrowidzki of El Paso Community College. Professor Ostrowidzki said "Introduction to Homeland Security: Policy, Organization, and Administration is appropriate for my [Intro to Homeland Security] course because it provides a basic, but developed overview of homeland security regarding the United States. The book’s approach is logical and easy to understand for students at the early college level."
