Today, the American Lung Association in Florida announced that Ihab AlShelli, MD from Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Pulmonary Medicine Department will speak at the LUNG FORCE Lung Cancer Patient Virtual Meetup on May 11. 

The Lung Cancer Patient Virtual Meetup is a program designed for lung cancer patients and caregivers to learn more about the latest trends, resources and research surrounding lung cancer. The meeting’s virtual platform will enable attendees from across the nation to forge meaningful connections with other patients and caregivers. Dr. AlShelli will present on Lung Cancer and Other Lung Diseases.

“Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in both women and men in the U.S. Fortunately, we are seeing improved survival rates thanks to increased awareness of early detection through lung cancer screening and continued advancements in research,” said Frank Eidelman, MD, MBA, FAAAAI, Director, Center for Medical Specialties and Chairman, Department of Allergy and Immunology, Cleveland Clinic Florida. “We are honored to have Dr. AlShelli featured at this national event to help people living with lung cancer navigate new developments in lung cancer treatment.”

At the event, other topics will include lung cancer nutrition, managing caregiver stress and breakout sessions about biomarkers including KRAS, RET, MET, and HER2. View the full schedule here. 

“Many patients with lung diseases including COPD and pulmonary fibrosis are at higher risk for lung cancer, therefore it’s very important they take steps to reduce their risk. I am pleased to be speaking at this event to help patients understand the steps need to be taken to decrease their risks of developing lung cancer and understand screening eligibility”, said Ihab AlShelli, MD, Pulmonologist, Cleveland Clinic Florida.
