Patient Care Navigator
Judith serves as the Patient Care Navigator for Medina Community Clinic. She is the primary contact for patients and providers, serving as a liaison between all parties to ensure quality care and services are delivered. She juggles medical documentation, transportation arrangements, provider interaction, and frequently assumes the role of a confidante for our patients, who find themselves in difficult situations.
She also plays a key role in the development of the patient navigation program within Medina Clinic, and leads the training on staff and interns who participate in navigation.
Judith has over 30 years of experience working with populations with complex social needs. Most recently, she served as a Patient Advocate at the Ann Klein Forensic Center, through the NJ Department of Health. After retiring from The State, Judith decided to continue her passion of service to those in need and joined Medina Clinic in its nascent stages in 2015.
Judith holds a BS in Social Work from Thomas Edison State University. She also holds certificates from AADE Peer Diabetes Educator Program, Stanford University Diabetes Self-Management Program, and Scripps Project Dulce: Diabetes Among Friends, furthering her passion for diabetes education and awareness.
