2018-10-03T20:58:27+00:00October 3rd, 2018|0 Comments

We educate the at-risk public and medical professionals about lung cancer risk and screening to ensure equitable access to this life-saving preventive service. We believe that:

  • People have the right to know if they are at risk for lung cancer
  • People have the right to know that high quality low-dose CT screening has been shown to significantly reduce the possibility of dying from lung cancer in those at high risk.
  • People have the right to clear and unbiased information on the risks and benefits of low-dose CT screening.
  • People have the right to ask screening sites if they follow best practices in lung cancer screening and provide or refer to care in a multi-disciplinary continuum.
  • People have the right to fair and equitable access to lung cancer screening and treatment.
  • People have the right to compassionate, high-quality care if they are diagnosed with lung cancer.
  • People have the right to participate in research studies at any point throughout the continuum of screening and care.
  • People have the right to donate CT scans, data and biological specimens to lung cancer research to help find additional life-saving cures.
