New York Physician to Speak at National American Lung Association Lung Cancer Event

On Friday, May 20, the American Lung Association will host a virtual program titled, “Lung Cancer Surgical Intervention Options” featuring Dr. Darren Rohan from Northwell Health. This is part of the Lung Association’s Lung Cancer Patient Meetup on the Go program, which features both live and recorded events to educate patients.

Dr. Rohan is the Westchester regional director of the Thoracic Surgery Program for Northwell Health. He is a highly skilled leader in robotic thoracic surgery, with expertise in robotic and minimally invasive thoracic procedures for lung surgery, hernias, gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophageal cancer and mediastinal masses. During the event, he will discuss surgery methods and approaches for the different types of lung cancer, and also what patients and caregivers will need to know before a loved one gets their surgery.

“Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths 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 treatments,” said Trevor Summerfield, director of advocacy for the Lung Association in New York. “We are honored to have Dr. Rohan featured at this national event to help people living with lung cancer navigate surgery options.”

The Lung Association’s Lung Cancer Patient Meetup on the Go program is designed to be flexible to meet the needs of lung cancer patients nationwide. The sessions are held live, then recorded and distributed for people to watch on their own time. 

The Lung Cancer Patient Virtual Meetup on the Go event with Dr. Rohan is on Friday, May 20 at 1 pm ET/10 a.m. PT. It will be recorded and distributed afterwards as well. Registration is free, and all are welcome. To get more information and register, click here.
