2023 Ken Schueler Seminar: Focus on Lung Cancer

The 2023 Ken Schueler Cancer Seminar will focus 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.

The Inaugural Ken Schueler Seminar was a Great Success!

The program is provided by the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy as a result of donations to the Kenneth Schueler Fund in honor of one of the NAHAC's founding leaders, Kenneth Schueler. Ken was a pioneer in health care advocacy who helped to launch the patient and health advocacy movement in the United States. He made enormous contributions to our organization while helping thousands of cancer patients during his distinguished career as a pioneering patient advocate.

About the Ken Schueler Cancer Seminar

The Ken Schueler Cancer Seminar isn’t your ordinary health care discussion. The Seminar is a series of stirring, succinct talks by current and emerging health care leaders with ideas that will help improve cancer care for patients, caregivers, and members of the healthcare team. In addition to the dynamic and thought-provoking speakers, the event features interactive dialogue among attendees to discuss their challenges and ideas about their cancer journey.

Far from a conventional conference, this event follows a “TED”-style format. That means the talks are shorter, compelling, memorable, and novel in nature. Expect to leave this event hearing something you haven’t heard before!

Who Should View the Seminar?

Cancer patients, caregivers, practitioners, healthcare advocates, anyone who is interested in the latest ideas in cancer treatment.
