LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. This conference will cover the context within which lung cancer is caused. Where the tobacco culture’s political and social dimensions are relevant to the propagation of disease, the goals and methods of the tobacco industry will be discussed. After the breadth of tobacco-related disease has been explored, key principles and state-of-the-art thinking about lung cancer will be explored. The overall goal is to enable physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacist, nurses and other health care professionals to be more effective at all levels of the fight against lung cancer. We hope to help prevent lung cancer and help improve the lives of those who have it.
The Tobacco and Disease: Fourth Annual Lung Cancer Symposium will provide up-to-date information on lung cancer to a target audience of physicians, respiratory and occupational therapists, nurses, pharmacists, other health care personnel, patients and advocates. The symposium will take place on Friday, November 8, 2013 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. It will be held at the Wyndham Riverfront in North Little Rock. The Cost is $55 with CME; $30 without CME. Credit cards are accepted.
