Patient Advocacy

The IASLC is proud to support and collaborate with individual advocates and advocacy organizations from all over world. 

Through this important work, greater awareness for lung cancer can be raised, more robust funding for research can be generated and public opinion can be shifted toward a more humane, compassionate and supportive outlook on lung cancer patients and their loved ones.

IASLC Meetings and Patient Advocacy

Advocates.IIEducational meetings focusing on lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies serve as a cornerstone of the IASLC's work. The association believes fully that, in order to maximize a meeting's potential, all members of the lung cancer community must be included and play an active role in shaping the event's character and content. 

In order to accomplish this and ensure that its meetings are as inclusive as possible, the IASLC provides a variety of resources to assist advocates in participating in its meetings. These resources take the form of advocacy-specific meeting tracks, as well as funding opportunities to offset the costs of registration and travel.
