Breast Cancer Hotline Volunteers Sought

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program seeks breast cancer survivors of all ages, race and ethnicity–men as well as women–to become volunteers.  Thus, the program seeks a diverse group of volunteers to reflect the diversity of the people who are calling the hotline.

The three-day training program will take place on consecutive Tuesdays—September 12, 19 and 26, from 9 am to 4 pm at Adelphi University in Garden City. This in-depth training includes presentations by nurse navigators and social workers on basic breast cancer education, active listening skills, and tips on engaging the community.

“It is so important for people who call our hotline to speak with someone who has been there,’” says social worker Alida Rubenstein, volunteer and hotline coordinator.

To arrange an interview, contact Ms. Rubenstein at 516 877-4315; email:
