Free Acupuncture Program will Begin for Cancer Patients in April

Acupuncture can be a tool to help reduce nausea, vomiting, and other side effects associated with chemotherapy. To assist our Duke Women’s Cancer Care Raleigh patients on their healing journey, we have partnered with Triangle Acupuncture Clinic to offer free acupuncture sessions to our infusion patients from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“These services allow our patients to help manage side effects of their cancer treatment so they can stay strong through recovery,” said Vincent McCray, Health Center Administrator, Duke Cancer Institute of Wake County. “We are excited to provide this service to our patients free of charge during their infusion visits.”

These acupuncture services begin at Duke Women’s Cancer Care Raleigh (4101 Macon Pond Road) in April. Acupuncture appointments are performed on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the infusion area while patients are receiving treatment and typically take 30-40 minutes. Patients can ask their provider about a referral to this service.
