Tomorrow (Thursday, August 8th) at 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific, we’re going to have our second lung cancer tweetchat, and I’d encourage anyone so inclined to join us in the conversation. We’ll be covering the timely topic of the division of lung cancer into subgroups based on histology, smoking status, molecular markers, etc., and whether that risks compromising some of the momentum we’ve achieved as a broader lung cancer community by developing some unity. Is there a risk of developing an “us” and “them” mentality within the lung cancer community?

I describe it more here and encourage you to share your thoughts in this thread, as a comment on the post in the link, or especially during the live tweetchat tomorrow!
