Tuesday 26 November
1:00 to 2:00
Location: Atrium, Ground Floor
Lung cancer is the biggest cancer killer in Australia, more than breast, prostate and ovarian cancers combined. Because it is associated with smoking, many people are unsympathetic towards those with lung cancer as it is perceived as being preventable. However, one in ten men and one in three women with lung cancer have never smoked.
We will be holding a Chris Chat that brings together lunch cancer experts and a patient to highlight some of the issues and developments surrounding the disease.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from staff specialists talk through promising treatments and hear a patient speak on how he talks about his diagnosis and how immunotherapy has changed his life.
Professor Boyer will lead the speakers through a discussion covering the promise of new treatments, symptoms to watch out for and how to tackle the surrounding stigma.
Presenters: Dr Steven Kao, Dr Ee Siang Choong, Ms Amy O’Donnell and Mr Anthony Barrett
