You've Waited Long Enough: Lung Cancer – From Screening to Diagnosis to Therapy in the Age of COVID-19


DATE: Wednesday, August 19, 2020

TIME: 12 – 1 p.m.


While COVID-19 has put a lot on hold, when it comes to lung cancer, time is of the essence.

Join us for an online information session! Hear from Einstein’s lung cancer experts discuss their approach to:

  • Screening, diagnosis, therapies and treatment
  • Recommended approximate timelines for each of these steps
  • Ways you can reduce your risk of COVID-19 exposure when you attend screenings and appointments (as well as during daily life)

You’ll also hear from a patient who has undergone lung cancer treatment at Einstein and have a chance to ask our physicians your questions.

Lung cancer can be curable if it is detected early. That’s why Einstein recommends low dose CT lung cancer screenings for people between the ages of 55 and 74 who currently smoke or have quit in the last 15 years and have a 30-pack-year smoking history.

If you’ve been diagnosed with lung cancer, Einstein’s expert team of pulmonologists, medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and nurse navigators provide comprehensive, personalized care and advanced treatment options to give you your best possible prognosis.
