HUNTINGTON, WV -

Heather Streets, a certified oncology nurse at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, has been selected the nurse navigator for the Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Program.

Streets has been a nurse for more than seven years, most recently in the cancer center's adult chemotherapy infusion area. In her new role, she will serve as an advocate alongside lung cancer patients from their diagnosis throughout their treatment. 

According to the center, nurses working in a navigator's role establish close relationships with patients to educate them about the cancer they are fighting and also to serve as a point of contact about their care.

Edwards' multidisciplinary lung cancer team combines the expertise of pulmonologists and cancer doctors to provide comprehensive care for patients.

Streets is a member of the Oncology Nurses Society and the National Coalition of Oncology Nurse Navigators. 

Edwards is located on the campus of Cabell Huntington Hospital and the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. It includes specialists in areas of radiation oncology, surgical oncology, medical oncology and hematology, orthopedic oncology, pediatric oncology, surgical breast oncology, clinical trials and cancer research.
