    2. 2. Objectives<br />Discuss the roles of various types of navigators and our approach integrating both community and nurse navigators<br />Describe the strategies to identify and address barriers across the continuum of care<br />Describe the institutional structures and resources that support our model that support the implementation and sustainability<br />
