Wisconsin Lung Cancer Screening and Policy Discussion

April 13 @ 4:42 am

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Please join the American Lung Association on November 18, 2021 from noon to 1pm for a virtual discussion on policies and strategies to improve lung cancer screening rates and health disparities, particularly in communities disproportionately affected by lung cancer in Wisconsin. You can register for the event here.

Join the conversation with experts:

Dr. Alberto de Hoyos, MD, FACS, FCCP, is the Chief of Thoracic Surgery and Director of Thoracic Oncology at Ascension Wisconsin. He believes in patient-centered, multi-disciplinary care. He is a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, American College of Surgeons and the American College of Chest Physicians.

Dr. Anand Narayan, MD is with the UW School of Medicine and Public Health as an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology and the Vice Chair of Health Equity. He is Vice Chair of the American College of Radiology’s Patient and Family Outreach Committee. He recently co-authored an article, “Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Lung Cancer Screening Eligibility,” that was published in Radiology. In the article, he analyzes how revised guidelines for lung cancer screening eligibility enhance health disparities for racial minorities.

Leslie Mann is a LUNG FORCE Hero, a cancer survivor who credits screening and early detection with saving her life.

We will share information on recent changes in lung cancer screening recommendations and coverage, and opportunities to collaborate on lung cancer policy work in the coming year.
