- provide outreach and patient navigation for underserved and hard-to-reach women to both first-time screening and annual screening;
- develop partnerships between community-based outreach and patient navigation providers and local medical providers;
- work with healthcare providers to ensure timely and appropriate clinical follow-up of abnormal screening results;
- assist clients with referrals to other medical and social services as needed and when available; and
