The health navigator AS degree trains you for the important roles of health navigator, patient navigator or community health worker. 

As a health navigator, you assist the elderly and those who have limited health literacy with accessing and maximizing benefits from community services, clinical care, and health insurance. You may also facilitate access to care and follow-up for patients with complex health issues such as cancer or HIV. Health navigators assist with identifying and enrolling patients in various health insurance plans including ACA Exchanges, Medicaid, Medicare, and disability services.

Health navigators are liaisons between patients, caregivers, and health care providers; they are advocates within a complex health care system to improve patient care.

The coursework includes the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in public health, health education or related fields.
