Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

This is the first of the presentations by guest speakers at our NSCLC Patient Education Forum back in September. Dr. Gerard Silvestri is a pulmonologist, a lung disease specialist (not only cancer), and he is also one of the most important leaders in lung cancer within the field of pulmonology, as both a writer of some very important work and as a great speaker.

His talk was a general introduction to the process of the workup and approach to staging a lung cancer. Below you'll find the links to audio and video versions of his presentation, the figures, and the transcript for his talk.

Over the next several weeks, we'll be releasing more from this series of talks covering a wide range of topics in lung cancer, and primarily NSCLC, that were presented at the forum.

We were very pleased to have Dr. Silvestri participate, even more so because he was so excited to reach out to patients and caregivers directly that he enthusiastically offered to work with us again sometime. We're definitely going tol take him up on that offer.
