Video

Drs. H. Jack West, Joan Schiller, and Isabel Preeshagul gathered this past year (virtually) to review information presented at ASCO and ESMO 2021, regarding patients dealing with a Lung Cancer diagnosis.

For this series, the doctors discuss new trials for patients with NSCLC and SCLC.  The video discussions cover the following topics:

My dilemma is #1 that I am worried about this growth and #2 that I am scheduled to leave for Puerto Vallarta for 2.5 weeks.

This article gives a high-level introduction to precision medicine.
