Access to the forefront of lung cancer treatment - an interactive town meeting.
By: Patient Power, LUNGevity
CHICAGO - June 12, 2015 - PRLog -- On Sunday, June 28th, in Chicago, Patient Power and LUNGevity will hold a free in-person town meeting at The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University—one of only 41 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation dedicated to improving the quality and effectiveness of care provided to patients with cancer—where you and your loved one can hear the latest in treatment and research from leading lung cancer experts.

With the first immune-based therapy approved for lung cancer, for patients and their care partners, digesting the science behind the approval of new therapies can be challenging. Still, job #1 remains—beating the cancer, and, fortunately, more tools are available to help us accomplish that. But what does the latest treatment news mean for patients with various subsets of lung cancer? How about second-line and third-line treatment options? How can side effects for some patients be better managed? Is supportive care therapy right for me?

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 you’ll share your knowledge with your peers, to learn and become empowered.

Please join us in person for this FREE interactive town meeting to learn:

What do we know about the latest treatments?
What second-line and third-line treatment options are available?
How can side effects and symptoms be managed?
Tips and resources for care partners
How to cope with financial, emotional and lifestyle issues

Our expert panel will take your questions, and advocates will be on hand to offer support and to connect you with a great deal of resources.
