News Release
PeaceHealth offers free lung cancer webinar on risk factors, diagnosis and management - 11/21/22

 

Vancouver, WA – In recognition of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center will hold a free webinar on Tuesday, Nov. 29 from 5:15 – 6 p.m., to raise awareness for lung cancer - the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. It claims more lives every year than breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers combined. Approximately 1 in 5 cancer deaths are due to lung cancer. 

It is encouraging to know, the five-year survival rate for lung cancer has steadily improved over the last few years. People are now living longer after being diagnosed with lung cancer as a result of lung cancer screening, and advancements in the diagnostic and treatment options. 

Join our physician panel who will share their expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of lung cancer. They will also field questions during the webinar:     

  • Bhanu K. Patibandla, MD – Pulmonary Medicine
  • Svetlana Kotova, MD – Thoracic Surgery
  • Nina Dhami, MD – Radiation Oncology
  • Ali Dadla, MD – Medical Oncology
  • Patricia Wooden, MD – Primary Care
