Lung Cancer Screening: A Decade of Advances, Challenges and Opportunities

Cancer, Community Events, Health & Wellness

For more than a decade, lung cancer screening has been recommended for those at high risk to decrease deaths from lung cancer by earlier detection. As part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, experts from the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center will discuss the current state of lung cancer screening, challenges to its implementation and opportunities for improving and expanding lung cancer screening in this Simon Says Experts Series.

Our speakers have extensive experience in establishing, studying and running lung cancer screening programs. Catherine R. Sears, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, is a practicing pulmonologist and physician-scientist focused on improving early lung cancer development and detection who directs the lung screening program at the Roudebush VA Medical Center. DuyKhanh P. Ceppa, M.D., associate professor of surgery, is a board-certified thoracic surgeon who established the lung cancer screening program at IU Health. You will learn about current recommendations for lung cancer screening, successes and ongoing challenges of implementation, and research efforts ongoing to improve access and impact of lung cancer screening for patients.

Shadia Jalal, M.D., associate professor of medicine and Lawrence H. Einhorn Scholar in Oncology, will moderate.
