The Congressional Briefing Series is a platform to educate Members of Congress and Congressional staff on issues related to lung cancer. During the briefing series, we will provide substantive, fact-based information through speakers and materials which focus on raising awareness and informing key decision makers about the current state of lung cancer in the United States and worldwide.
Our Congressional Briefing Series focuses on important topics such as increasing survivorship, showing the value of federally funded lung cancer research, supporting preventive screening efforts, highlighting new and emerging breakthroughs, understanding lung cancer among our military service members and ensuring equitable access to preventive screening, treatments, diagnostics and testing.
All briefings will take place on Capitol Hill and are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Please check back regularly as details are finalized.
