Making Your Best Treatment Choices in Lung Cancer
There are numerous new developments in the treatment of lung cancer, including multiple treatments approved over the last several months. As the pace of research quickens, many patients and care partners find themselves trying to make sense of what treatment choices are most appropriate and when to pursue them. For example, what biomarker tests are available? And what information is necessary to make the best treatment choices for you and when?
On Saturday, March 5th, in Houston, Texas, Patient Power and LUNGevity will hold a free in-person town meeting at MD Anderson Cancer Center—one of the world’s most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education and prevention. At this meeting, you and your loved one will hear the latest in both research and treatment from leading lung cancer experts. The meeting will also be broadcast live online.
During this interactive town meeting, you will have the opportunity to meet and connect with medical experts, other patients, survivors and care partners touched by lung cancer. Our hope is that participants will pool their knowledge, so all can gain more insight and become more empowered to make YOUR best treatment choices in lung cancer.
Please join us in person for this FREE interactive town meeting to learn:
- What information is needed to make the best treatment decisions for YOU?
- What emerging therapies are in development?
- How to best manage side effects.
- How to find a clinical trial.
- How to cope with financial, emotional and lifestyle issues.
