The Best of Lung Cancer Summit is a digital meeting and will be held on Friday, October 30, 2020.
Chaired by Dr. Barbara Melosky and Dr. Paul Wheatley-Price, this year’s program will take the most significant lung cancer data from the 2020 ASCO, ESMO and World Lung conferences, and put it into context for oncology professionals. Speakers will review the latest research with in-depth analysis and discussion to improve the current standard of lung cancer care.
After taking part in the program, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the current and future availability and application of immunotherapy in the treatment of lung cancer.
2. Understand the latest strategies for managing lung cancer with radiation therapy and/or surgery.
3. Discuss approaches for maximizing outcomes on the standard of care in the management of lung cancer using biomarker testing, targeted therapies and other new targets.
