Meet Betsy Blanton

Nurse Navigator for the Hematology Oncology Program, Betsy B. Blanton, BSN, RN, works with breast cancer patients.

Betsy Blanton image"I help with assisting the breast cancer patient along this very emotional, mental, and physical challenging journey," said Betsy.

She arranges appointments around child care, transportation, and/or work responsibilities. She also helps with medicines, completing forms, resource referrals and education. But she also offers something special to her patients, "I always offer a hand to hold, arms to hug and a presence to say I am with you, you are not alone in this journey." This is part of her personal philosophy; she strongly believes that the patient comes first. 

Personally, Betsy loves to be outdoors gardening when not enjoying a good book! She enjoys watching UNC baseball and basketball. She also likes cooking while listening to Darius Rucker or Zack Brown Band--it makes it so much more fun!
