Give a Spit is more than a community service… we are a movement and we’re hoping to make you part of it. Our goal is to empower you to take control of your healthcare by providing you and your doctor with medically actionable information to develop a plan and stay cancer free.
Give a Spit is a grass roots initiative focused on community outreach and patient education. Our goal is to inform and inspire women to take immediate action and understand their individual risk for cancer. There is a lot that can be done to prevent cancer and detect it early on. That’s where we come in… we’re your personal advocate, your health navigator and the ass-kicker that makes sure you stay on track to be healthy.
The Give a Spit Campaign was developed by Navagen Heath Partners. We love pink ribbons and the passion behind them, but we think men and women need a better way to turn that passion into action. Our campaign lets empowered women better understand their own breast cancer risks and what they can do to stay healthy. Men and women can rely on us to give them personalized recommendations about their hereditary cancer risks. As we get to know each other better, we hope you’ll trust us to provide you with advice on a variety of health issues.
What differentiates us from other healthcare sites is that we don’t just educate or outline a problem… we lift barriers to care, and provide immediate personalized solutions… whenever you need them, wherever you are. We’ll help you assess your risk. Help you understand the results. If your risk is elevated, we’ll make sure your insurance covers a genetic test as preventative care… and most insurers do! We will then send you a Spit Kit to collect a saliva sample. When the results come back from the lab, we will help you understand what they mean and what you should be doing about them. If you need a doctor or specialist recommendation, we can help there too. At this point, everyone is aware of breast cancer… we want you to do something about it.
We’ll be there! We’d love to work with you and your organization to help save lives. Shoot us an email and we’ll find time to chat. We can help you send group emails or texts to your organization inviting them to learn more about their risks and take action. We can come to your organization with our team of genetics educators to provide valuable information and test those who meet criteria right on the spot.
The Give A Spit Campaign is currently limited to Connecticut but we plan on expanding nationally very soon. So if you’re a healthcare provider or administrator and want to team up with Navagen to reach more patients and improve more lives please send us a note.
If you’re not a healthcare provider, but are passionate and need the tools to help your friends, your family, your whole community… then we’d love to hear from you as well. We’ll share our resources and knowledge with anyone who is as passionate as we are.
