Managing Cancer at Work offers support groups

Managing Cancer at Work, a one-of-a-kind program developed for faculty and staff by a team at Johns Hopkins, is designed specifically to help both those who want to proactively prevent cancer and those who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis or caring for a loved one with cancer. The program offers information on a full range of cancer care that covers prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivorship.

Among the program's offerings are two support groups—one for those with a cancer diagnosis, on the first Wednesday of the month, and one for caregivers, on the second Wednesday of the month. Each group meets at noon in Room 2092 of the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, and participants are welcome to bring their lunch. Marie Borsellino, the program's nurse navigator, facilitates the groups; for more information, contact her at
