Today, the American Lung Association in Florida announced that local physician Margaret Johnson, MD, from Mayo Clinic in Florida will speak at the national LUNG FORCE Expo about “Lung Cancer in Nonsmokers” on Wednesday, December 8.
The virtual LUNG FORCE Expo is designed to help healthcare professionals learn about the latest trends in research, treatments and recommendations for lung cancer. In addition to the educational sessions, the LUNG FORCE Expo includes two networking sessions on December 7 that include roundtable discussions on provider self-care, reaching patients in rural settings, and patient education tools and resources.
“It is more important than ever before to focus on and support lung health. Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer here in Florida and nationwide, so it is critical that healthcare providers are educated on the newest trends, research and treatments that have the potential to benefit their patients,” said Cindy Springer, senior development manager for the Lung Association. “We are honored to have Dr. Johnson featured at this important event to help healthcare professionals better treat their patients living with lung cancer.”
The event will also feature topics like novel lung cancer diagnostics, radon, dealing with grief as a healthcare provider and much more. View the full agenda here.
The LUNG FORCE Expo is on Wednesday, December 8 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET. Continuing education credits will be available for respiratory therapists, nurses, and Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES®). More information and registration are available on the LUNG FORCE Expo website.
