2019 NLCRT Annual Meeting
Date: December 9-10, 2019
Location: Capital Hilton, Washington DC
Each year, the NLCRT membership, a nationwide coalition of over 100 professional and national societies, cancer centers, government agencies, research groups, advocacy and policy organizations, and corporate associates convenes to work together on our shared goal to create lung cancer survivors.
The 2019 NLCRT Annual Meeting will feature presentations by nationally known experts, thought-leaders, and decision-makers on lung cancer and will facilitate national lung cancer awareness, prevention, early detection, and optimal diagnosis and therapy through public education, provider education, health policy activities, and the collective engagement of member organizations.
We need your critical thinking, expertise, and participation to advance our shared efforts.
