Winship Launches New Clinical Trials Commitment

More cancer patients than ever can benefit from clinical trial participation. Starting today, Winship is launching a "1000 by 2020" Clinical Trials Initiative, in which we seek to enroll at least 1,000 patients on therapeutic cancer clinical trials per year by 2020. Winship is increasing efforts to educate all clinical team members, patients, and caregivers on the benefits of participating in clinical research and how results of these trials can make a difference for generations of cancer patients to come.
