Overview:
The 9th Annual Lung Cancer Symposium will offer attendees the opportunity for a comprehensive update in lung cancer while interacting with our state of the art faculty and reviewing actual cases with
a mock tumor board. Topics will include lung cancer screening, a surgical approach to early stage disease, and evolving therapeutics for advanced stage, metastatic or recurrent disease. The course is designed for physicians, physicians assistance, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, respiratory therapists, and public health professionals.
