The 2023 Ken Schueler Cancer Seminar focused on the evolving diagnostic and treatment landscape in lung cancer. Impactful efforts to improve clinical care outcomes and the care experience within a dynamic healthcare environment will be discussed.

According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer (both small cell and non-small cell) is the second most common cancer, not including skin cancer. 

Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death, making up almost 25% of all cancer deaths. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.

On a positive note, the number of new lung cancer cases continues to decrease due to a reduction in the number of smokers. Also, there are fewer deaths from lung cancer as a result of advances in early detection and treatment.

Our speakers for NAHAC's 2023 Ken Schueler Seminar are distinguished oncology focused professionals with expertise in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, advocacy, managing symptoms and end of life care.
