16th Annual International Lung Cancer Congress®


July 30 - August 1, 2015
Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach
Huntington Beach, CA

Overview

The International Lung Cancer Congress® provides current, practical information on the management of lung cancer, as well as a look at the novel agents and strategies that will shape the future of lung cancer therapy. Leading international and national faculty will address critical topics in lung cancer staging, personalized therapy, and the latest clinical data impacting the treatment of lung cancer. Cutting-edge lectures, panel discussions, multidisciplinary tumor boards, and interactive question-and-answer sessions will provide a unique opportunity for participants to engage with faculty as they share their perspectives and personal experiences on the clinical challenges and ongoing controversies in lung cancer management. The meeting also includes a recurring session that highlights clinical research activity of Cooperative Groups in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute Launches New Study, Featured on ABC News



A fantastic segment ran on KABC Los Angeles last night entitled "Lung Cancer Strikes Younger Demographic." It was filmed last week at PER®'s International Lung Cancer Congress® and featured interviews with Dr. Barbara Gitlitz, Bonnie J Addario, and 28 year old lung cancer survivor Emily Bennett Taylor.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical, surgical and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of patients with lung cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of lung cancer are also invited to attend.


Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:
  • Outline best practices for diagnosis and staging of lung cancer
  • Summarize appropriate biomarker testing/re-testing strategies to be applied based upon patient and disease characteristics
  • Discuss treatment strategies for early-stage and locally advanced lung cancer
  • Describe strategies to optimize treatment plans in patients with lung cancer, considering factors such as efficacy of a drug in different settings, prior therapies, existing comorbidities, and disease characteristics
  • Evaluate data on new agents and approaches in development for lung cancer
  • Review recent data on immune-checkpoint inhibition with anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 blockade
  • Assess how emerging data on the use of molecularly targeted agents can be used to improve the treatment of patients with NSCLC
  • Identify appropriate clinical trials examining novel agents that are designed to benefit patients with lung cancer
