Webinar on Pulmonary Complications in Lung Cancer, with Pulmonologist Gerard Silvestri
Thu, 05/03/2012 - 21:44
Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

Our next webinar will be with Dr. Gerard Silvestri, Professor of Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.  Dr. Silvestri is amazingly dynamic and gave one of my favorite talks that was turned into a podcast, on the workup of lung cancer.  He's terrific with patients and can cover difficult concepts very accessibly, really connecting with his audience.

GRACE and LUNGevity Foundation will be partnering to feature him in an upcoming webinar on Wednesday, May 30th, at 7 PM Eastern, 4 PM Pacific, where he will cover topics of pulmonary complications like pleural effusions, obstructed airways and collapsed lung lobes, and coughing up blood, and of course how these can be managed.


His presentation will be about 40-45 minutes, followed by a question and answer session with our live audience.  Registration is free, and we hope you'll be able to join us, but we'll also be turning his presentation into a few podcasts for people to access as they need them later.

You can sign up for Dr. Silvestri's upcoming webinar here.
