t takes many voices to create an effective coalition that is committed to raising awareness about the prevention and early detection of lung cancer. The NLCRT is composed of more than 140 member organizations with expertise in the areas of:

How the NLCRT Functions
The NLCRT serves as a catalyst to stimulate greater levels of collaborative engagement among member organizations’ work on key lung cancer issues. The work of the NLCRT is guided by its strategic plan with direction and input from its Steering Committee. Through the efforts of its Task Groups, the NLCRT advances initiatives that focus on primary care, tobacco treatment, shared decision-making, implementation of screening programs, access to high quality screening, triage for appropriate diagnostic evaluation and therapy, and an end to the stigma and nihilism associated with a diagnosis of lung cancer.
A fundamental premise of the NLCRT is that collective action among the member organizations will be more successful in reducing the burden of disease, and reducing that burden faster. A core principle of the NLCRT is that it will not duplicate or take on roles of member organizations; rather, the Roundtable seeks to enhance organization’s contributions to lung cancer control through greater engagement with other key organizations, as well as to take on initiatives that all organizations would judge to be worthy, but would be unlikely to initiate on their own.
Members work diligently to share information, identify needs and opportunities, and address gaps in research, programs, activities, and services relating to lung cancer. The strength of such a partnership, united in mission, enhances the work of each member and furthers the cause of lung cancer prevention, early detection, and appropriate treatment.
