View Webinar Recording: CLICK HERE

Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death in America. While the overall 5-year survival rate of lung cancer has improved to 21.7%, this survival rate improves to 59% when lung cancer is detected early. Unfortunately, only 23% of all lung cancers are detected early.

Join local lung health experts as they discuss the need to optimize lung cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. This webinar will provide an update on lung cancer screening, including the new USPSTF lung cancer guidelines, define new technologies to diagnose lung cancer earlier and determine optimal strategies to guide lung nodule management.
