Lung Cancer Patient Virtual Meetup

In today’s environment we recognize how important it is to be nimble and flexible. For our fall event, we are changing the format of the Lung Cancer Patient Meetup to better fit your needs. We are calling it the Lung Cancer Patient Meetup on the Go. We have several fascinating webinars planned for the fall and plan to share recordings of the webinars in November during Lung Cancer Awareness Month. That way you can access the information when it is convenient for YOU!
