Saved By the Scan / Salva Tu Pulmon
“Saved By The Scan” is the only national public service advertising (PSA) campaign to educate Americans about the groundbreaking lung cancer screening for those at high risk for the disease. The low-dose CT scan can detect lung cancer in the early stages, before symptoms arise, when the disease is more curable.
To extend the campaign’s message further and reach Hispanic audiences who may be at risk for lung cancer, the American Lung Association and Ad Council released a Spanish language version of the campaign and screening eligibility quiz, with corresponding website, located at SalvaTuPulmon.org (SavedByTheScan.org in English).
