The Network is participating in a rich programme of activities across the conference. We are delighted that many of the Network members will be participating in sessions and presenting their work at this year’s conference.
Members of the Network and representatives from its Secretariat will be joining clinicians, patient advocates and researchers to share progress made in improving outcomes from lung cancer. This annual conference is a fantastic opportunity for shared learning and fostering continued collaboration among the global lung cancer community.
