Biography

Justina Lynch, R.N. specializes in new and returning patient visits to the prostate cancer clinic. A nurse with a background in oncology and medical surgical nursing, Justina is the nurse navigator for the prostate cancer clinic, a clinic that brings together three different specialties: medical, urologic and radiation oncology to consult and treat new patients in the clinic, or patients with a recent change in prognosis. Justina also assists in connecting patients to different specialties including medical genetics, the prostate exercise program, nutrition, and rehabilitation to assist patients in maximizing their health.

A new diagnosis of prostate cancer or a change in disease status can be a frightening and unsettling time for many. As nurse navigator, her role is to assist new or returning patients to find the right provider at the right time.

In her spare time Justina likes to read, run and pursue different styles of dance. She mostly spends her days chasing around her three children and spending time with her husband.
