New Lung Cancer Patient Advisory Group Announced

(April 14, 2016)

The Lung Association has assembled 16 LUNG FORCE Heroes, representing all eight of our chartered organizations, to form a new Lung Cancer Patient Advisory Group. The members serve in an advisory role to the American Lung Association. The Lung Association plans to use the insights from the group, in conjunction with feedback and guidance from our medical, scientific and public health advisors to inform the organization's activities.

"The diverse patient and caregiver perspectives this group brings to our initiatives, messages and materials is invaluable as we continue to work toward our strategic imperatives of defeating lung cancer and reducing its burden," said Harold Wimmer, National President and CEO.

The Lung Association is honored to welcome the following members into the Lung Cancer Patient Advisory Group:
