    The 2nd Annual Jefferson Lung Cancer Symposium

    Friday, March 7, 2014

    Course Location:
    Bluemle Life Sciences Building
    233 S. 10th Street
    Philadelphia, PA 19107

    The 2nd Annual Jefferson Lung Cancer Symposium is specifically designed for specialists whose practice focuses on the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of lung cancer utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach.

    Lung cancer is ranked as the leading cause of cancer-related mortality both in the US and worldwide. However, there have been dramatic advances in our understanding of the benefits of careful screening of high-risk individuals, the molecular biology of lung cancer, novel targets of importance, and the development of targeted therapies. The Course Director, Dr. Mani S. Kavuru, MD, Professor of Medicine and the Director of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, has developed a multidisciplinary program, offering participants a unique opportunity to witness experts in the fields of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Surgery, and Oncology as they review the most current literature supporting how they manage and treat patients diagnosed with this disease.

    Participants will examine case presentations from multiple perspectives, and gain in-depth understanding to how experienced healthcare providers approach difficult patient care decisions. The program will also emphasize updated approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and will reinforce best practices through lively interactive case-based presentations, providing the opportunity for in-depth discussions on how the information presented at the conference can impact participant competency and their patient care processes, and allowing for a significant opportunity for audience members to interact with program faculty and discussants.

    Attendees will participate in the "mock tumor board" as a multi-disciplinary panel interacts. Experts in the fields of Surgery, Oncology, and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine will review and analyze cases drawn from practice and develop management strategies to optimize patient care.

Specific attention will be paid to the appropriate approaches to vexing cough syndrome, community acquired pneumonia and cryptic dyspnea and its role in vascular disease. The conference features a keynote address on sleep disorders by Dr. Naresh Punjabi, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins. A key feature of the conference lies in the round table discussion, which will provide the opportunity for in depth discussions on how the information presented at the conference can impact participant competency and their patient care processes.
