National Lung Cancer Screening Day
The American Cancer Society National Lung Cancer Roundtable (ACS NLCRT), GO2 for Lung Cancer (GO2), Radiology Health Equity Coalition (RHEC), and American College of Radiology (ACR) have partnered once again for the second annual National Lung Cancer Screening Day (“National LCS Day”) on Saturday, November 11, 2023. We are promoting this lifesaving event to screen more individuals and raise awareness about lung cancer screening. As part of a key initiative of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and in acknowledgment of National LCS Day falling on the Veterans Day holiday, the ACS NLCRT, ACR, RHEC, and GO2 have partnered with the Veterans Administration on this campaign in order to salute our Veterans by increasing outreach and awareness to our veteran population, in turn saving more lives. As part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month and in partnership with the ACR, RHEC, and GO2 we are promoting this lifesaving event to screen more individuals and raise awareness about lung cancer screening. The President’s Cancer Panel recommends lung cancer screening as the single most effective strategy for reducing mortality from the disease and closing the gap to improve health equity and access. To achieve this goal, the President’s Cancer Panel has charged individuals, health systems, and communities with communicating and promoting lung cancer screening.
