  • Overview

    Lung Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death and the second most diagnosed cancer in both men and women in the US.  Incidence rates vary from state to state, but are of concern in the South.1

    These sobering statistics are compounded by the documented variations in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) care which can be attributed to several factors including unfamiliarity with current guidelines and limited access to cancer treatment centers of excellence.  Another influential factor is the lack of coordinated care among health teams and systems, resulting in a diminished focus on patient inclusion and empowerment.2
