Leaders from radiology and hospital administration involved in lung cancer screening and treatment at Indiana's Elkhart General Hospital will share how they partnered to create a multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Clinic. Patients and family members have a seat at the table, participating with doctors in their course of treatment. The hospital's cancer committee initiated the program to address a public health crisis involving the area's high percentage of smokers, as compared to the rest of Indiana.
