The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention, NEW YORK

The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention is a community based Center for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer through new models of patient care, research, education and outreach designed to address the unique needs of the community. The Center, made possible by a generous gift from the Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation, is a partnership between Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and North General Hospital. Located in East Harlem, New York, its patient’s rights include making cancer screening and treatment available to all. The center also offers a Patient Navigation System for helping people overcome all obstacles on the path to receiving cancer screening, treatment and supportive care. We assign everyone who walks through our doors a patient navigator—their personal guide, advocate and problem-solver.
