Support Services and Community Events

    Einstein is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care before, during and after treatment.

    Our cancer program offers services and support to meet many needs, including:

    • Navigation in community to help reduce the disparities of care faced by some of our population
    • Free cancer screening programs
    • Support groups and counseling to assist patients and their families with life changes that inevitably accompany cancer diagnoses
    • Social workers to talk with people and their families about emotional and physical needs and to find them support services
    • Education sessions about colorectal, prostate and breast cancer

    Cancer Survivorship Program

    Survivorship focuses on the health and life of a person with cancer post-treatment until end of life. Einstein’s expanded cancer survivorship program provides treatment summaries and survivorship plans to patients and their primary care physicians, as well as their families, friends and caregivers. The program covers physical, psychosocial and economic issues of cancer, beyond the diagnosis and treatment phases.

    Patient Navigators

    Patient navigators are health care providers who have been trained to work with patients to help them solve problems and overcome obstacles that might keep patients from getting what they need. Einstein’s patient navigators provide focused service for breast, colorectal and prostate cancer patients. Through one-on-one contact with the patient our navigators schedule appointments and provide guidance from initial consultation until the end of treatment. Funded by the NCCCP.

    Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia's Cancer Awareness and Prevention (CAP) program conducts educational programs and cancer screenings in our underserved communities. The program, which has served more than 12,000 people, enables Einstein to boost cancer awareness in African-American, Latino and Asian neighborhoods that do not otherwise have access to high quality medical care. For this work, the CAP program received the American Cancer Society's Cancer Control Award.


    Our free makeover program for women with cancer. Co-sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the American Cosmetology Association, the program teaches women makeup, hair and wig-styling techniques to help them overcome some of the physical changes they experience due to side effects of cancer treatment.

At Einstein Cancer Center, a Registered Dietician is available to speak with you during your treatment. Call and leave your name and number at 215-456-6648 for Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and 484-622-0308 for Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.


    Your cancer diagnosis and treatment may cause emotional side effects. Feelings of depression and anxiety, in particular, are common in cancer patients. If you experience these, or other mental health problems, you can get psychological or psychiatric counseling through Belmont Behavioral Health. We are dedicated to helping improve your quality of life. Contact Tiffany Raroha at 215-456-3818 to set up an appointment.


    Patients who experience cancer-related pain and other symptoms, either from the disease itself, or from treatment, receive support and comfort through our palliative care service. Our goal is to alleviate the pain, symptoms and stress of serious illness. Care is available for people of any age and at any point in an illness. It can be delivered along with treatments that help fight your cancer. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services.


    If you are receiving cancer treatment you may want to visit our Resource Center that offers a computer with Internet access, informational literature in English and Spanish, and a lending library of books and videotapes. We invite you to take advantage of this center. It's our way of helping you have the information you need to participate as an active member of the healthcare team and share in important decisions about your care. Call 215-456-3822 for more information.
