WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP) of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center (WFUBMC) is offering a new support group for patients currently in active treatment for cancer.

The Active Treatment Support Group, which is open to all cancer patients regardless of where they receive their treatment, meets Wednesdays from 10:30-11:45 am in the CPSP Support Room, on the 7th floor of the Clinical Sciences Building on the WFUBMC campus.
